The local MP for Hastings and Rye, Sally-Ann Hart, has welcomed the recent opening of a new Covid19 testing centre in Ore, Hastings.
In a letter received from Lord Bethell, the Minister at the Department of Health (see below), it was outlined that the new walk-through site will be opening at the Ore Valley Campus of East Sussex Coast College, on Parker Road.
On receiving the news, Sally-Ann said "this is fantastic news and shows yet further progress being made locally in our fight against Covid19. Having more accessible testing sites in our area will greatly help to identify those who have the virus and the action needed to ensure they self-isolate. This new walk through site is designed to be easy to access and use for anyone in the area. If you have any symptoms that include a persistent cough, high temperature or loss of taste and smell then you need to self-isolate and book an appointment to get a test. This new site in Ore is yet another tool in our armoury to fight against this pandemic."
