Hillsborough proposed Covid-19 test centre


Recommended Posts

Hillsborough is being touted as a potential Covid test centre 

 

It is understood that the testing centre would be put in place at the underpass beneath the South Stand, close to the player’s entrance, with patients arriving at the Penistone Road end of the ground and exiting via Leppings Lane.
 

It is believed that the club are currently looking to see whether they can facilitate the centre.

Patients would be asked to drive up to the centre and have their throats swabbed without leaving their car.

Surely Hillsborough Leisure Centre car park would be a better solution in the nearby vicinity?

 

Or even Hillsborough College Car Park? Owlerton Stadium Car Park?

 

Under the South Stand seems like one of the very worst options in the area, really.

It's a covered area so it would be preferable.

Actually - open air is preferable so as to not enclose testers and patients with the virus. Hardly any of the COVID testing sites are under cover.

 

Here's a few fairly local examples:

How do they stick the thing in your gob if you have to keep your windows closed?  :huh:

 

You keep the window closed until they specifically ask you to open it.

Its a Cat C test It costs £24.99 to be tested (£29.99 for non members) tickets not available on the day of the test, the test appointment must be purchased before entering and it is a contactless system in place.

isn't that all you need

 

Looking at the pictures of all the other test centres - no. You need space and multiple lanes (otherwise theres going to be a huge queue).
