Rise in cases in Lockerbie area

EXTRA coronavirus testing is running in Lockerbie this week following an increase in cases in the area.

A mobile testing unit will be in McJerrow Car Park every day until Thursday.

And health bosses say anyone living in Lockerbie and the general DG11 postcode area in mid-Annandale who is experiencing symptoms of covid should self-isolate along with their household and arrange to be tested.

They are also encouraging anyone experiencing a mild illness, such as diarrhoea, runny nose or sore throat, to be tested.

In addition, testing is also there for those people without any symptoms.

The testing unit is open from 11 am to 4 pm. Booking in advance is preferred but not required. To book, go to www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or call 0800 028 2816.
