Online Eligibility Checker for COVID-19 Testing for Powys Key Workers

 

A new online eligibility checker is available for Key (Critical) Workers in Powys to help them book an appointment at new mobile testing units for COVID-19 in the county.

 

The mobile testing units help to bring testing closer to home across the county. This includes for key (critical) workers who have symptoms of COVID-19 or who have an immediate household member with symptoms of COVID-19.

 

The current testing strategy from Welsh Government identifies the following categories of key (critical) worker:

 

  • Health and social care workers
  • Public safety (emergency workers) and national security workers
  • Local and national government workers
  • Education and childcare workers
  • Food and other necessary goods
  • Transport workers
  • Utilities, communication and financial services workers
  • Key public service workers

 

Testing is available to key (critical) workers with symptoms of COVID-19, or to a symptomatic household member of a key (critical) worker.

 

The online eligibility checker is available from www.powysthb.wales.nhs.uk/coronavirus-testing
