Sheffield's six Covid testing centres are open seven days a week to help fight the spread of coronavirus in the city.

Sheffield City Council has confirmed that the centres at Meadowhall, Sharrow, Darnall, Burngreave and Upperthorpe are operational, with the centre at Parkside Road car park in Hillsborough relocating to the site of the former Hazlebarrow Primary School in Jordanthorpe from Monday 11 January.

Anyone in the city showing symptoms can book a coronavirus test by calling 119 or visiting the NHS website.

Greg Fell, Director of Public Health for Sheffield, said: "If anyone has Covid symptoms they should book a test straightaway and once they have had their test they must self-isolate until they have received their results so that they can protect those around them as much as possible.”

While Sheffield's infection rate remains one of the lowest in the country – 230 cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to 31 December, according to Public Health England – the whole country is subject to its third national lockdown until at least 15 February due to the outbreak of a more transmissible variant of coronavirus.

Details of Sheffield’s coronavirus testing centres are:

  • Meadowhall Shopping Centre (drive-through) - overspill car park plot 7, S9 1EP.
  • Sharrow (pedestrian) - Alderson Road Car Park, S2 4LG.
  • Darnall (pedestrian) - Station Road Car Park, S9 4JT.
  • Burngreave (pedestrian) - Gower Street Car Park, S4 7HA.
  • Upperthorpe (pedestrian) - Shipton Street Car Park, S6 3EB.
  • Jordanthorpe (mobile test centre, pedestrian & drive-through) - Former Hazlebarrow Primary School, Hazlebarrow Crescent, S8 8AN.
