COVID-19 tests now open to people in Cardiff and the Vale with a wider range of symptoms
The Cardiff and Vale Test, Trace, Protect Service is now advising residents to book a coronavirus test if they have any one of a wider range of symptoms. The change will help identify cases of new variants of COVID-19 and identify people who may be at risk of passing on the disease to others without knowing.
As well as the three most common symptoms of Covid-19 - a fever, a new continuous cough or a loss/change of taste and smell - people are now able to get a test if they have any of a new list of other symptoms too. These are fatigue, myalgia (muscle ache or pain), a sore throat, a headache, sneezing, a runny nose, a loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea.
In line with the recent Welsh Government announcement, the service will also be offering all close contacts of those who have tested positive a test, rather than asking them to wait until they develop symptoms, and offering tests to anyone who has had a change in their symptoms following a previous negative test result.
Residents of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan can access a test at any of the regional testing centres, or by using a home test kit. The testing centres for Cardiff and the Vale are located at:
- Cardiff City Stadium, Leckwith
- Museum Avenue, Cardiff city centre
- County Hall, Cardiff Bay
- Former Parkview Medical Centre, Ely
- Colcot Sports Centre, Barry
Tests can be booked online at https://gov.wales/getting-tested-coronavirus-covid-19 or by calling 119. When booking a test online due to having one of the wider range of symptoms residents should select the option “you have been asked to take a test by your local council”.
