Swans make Liberty Stadium available as Coronavirus testing centre
Swansea City has extended its support for the NHS by making the Liberty Stadium available as a Coronavirus testing centre for health and social care staff.
Work on the drive-through unit, the second in the Swansea Bay area, is due to start next week and should be finished by next Friday.
The six-lane facility will complement the testing unit at Margam in Port Talbot, which opened in early March.
The stadium will be able to test up to 360 people per day and will allow easier access for health and social care staff living in the Swansea area.
The testing unit will be located in the North car park and will have its own dedicated vehicle entrance. Other car parking areas around the Liberty Stadium will not be affected.
With the Swans also hosting NHS nurse training sessions on a daily basis at the stadium, it’s another example of fantastic partnership working in these difficult times with the Swansea Bay University Health Board, Swansea Council and Swansea City joining forces for this vital testing unit.
Please note that the testing unit is for health and social care staff who will be attending by appointment only. It is not for the general public use.
