Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board has confirmed the latest arrangements for
mobile testing facilities for residents in Bridgend County Borough who have coronavirus
symptoms.

A new drive-through mobile testing facility will open on Friday 5 March at Bettws playing fields
on Heol Richard Price (CF32 8SF). It will be available daily from 9am until 5pm and booking is
essential.

The drive-through facility currently available at the Halo Swimming Pool on Marshfield Avenue
in Pyle will close at the end of today (Thursday, 4 March).

A walk-through testing facility remains in place at the Bowls Hall car park off Bridgend Life
Centre (Angel Street, Bridgend CF31 4AH). The facility is available 8am-8pm, seven days a
week, and booking is also essential.

To arrange an appointment for either of these testing facilities, visit the  Welsh Government
website  or call 119. People with hearing or speech difficulties can book an appointment by
calling 18001119.

Council Leader Huw David said: “Covid-19 is still circulating in our communities so it is vital
that residents who develop symptoms self-isolate immediately and book a test. The main
symptoms are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a change or loss of your
sense of smell or taste.

“While vaccination programme continues to be rolled out across the county borough, it will
take some time for everyone to be offered their first dose so it’s important that we all continue
to follow the rules.

“If you feel unwell, visit NHS 111 Wales online or contact your local community pharmacist. If
necessary, you can also contact your local GP, but please only call 999 or attend the
emergency department if you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms.”

Community testing has begun in the county borough for people who are not showing signs of
coronavirus.

The first testing centre, which targets people living in Cefn Cribwr, Pyle, Kenfig Hill and
Cornelly, is available at the Kenfig Hill Rugby and Football Club until Tuesday 9 March.

No booking is necessary for the walk-in centre, which is open between 9.30am-6.30pm
Monday to Friday, and 10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
