There are three testing sites in North Somerset: the regional centre at Bristol Airport and mobile testing units at Castlewood, Clevedon and Locking Road car park in Weston.

The sites can’t take walk-ins. Appointments for a test must be booked online, through the app or by calling 119.

Access to testing continues to be an issue locally and nationally. The advice remains that people with symptoms should self-isolate at home while trying to access a test.


You’ll have heard the term ‘long Covid’ referred to in news reports to describe the ongoing impact that the virus is having for some people. Long Covid is a condition that can affect patients in many different ways and our understanding of how to manage it is still evolving. Support is now available for people to help them come to terms with the impact the virus has had on both body and mind. A new NHS website includes a range of advice and tools to aid recovery.

    A very useful website with great facts on the current Covid situation locally.
    However, it would make more sense if, in addition to total cases, we could see the number of hospital admissions; number of deaths; how many are over 65 or with pre-existing health problems, and also how many cases of flu & pneumonia resulting in hospitalisation occurred locally at the same time?
    We need the full picture.
