Testing is important to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus in our communities.

Following an increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 in Dundee of the Delta variant (also known as the variant first identified in India), testing sites across the city are now open for people to get tested, whether they have symptoms or not. 

In addition to the mobile testing vans which are visiting sites across the city, the following testing sites will now offer a PCR test to people whether or not they have any symptoms of the virus. 

Booking is preferred and you can book a test at www.nhsinform.scot or by calling 0800 028 2816. If you need support with the booking process, call 119. People without bookings will also be accepted.
