Book your Community Covid test

Community COVID testing is now available in Hartlepool for people who don’t have symptoms of the virus. The aim is to test as many people as possible to find out if they have COVID and then help them to isolate and reduce transmission of the virus. Hartlepool Borough Council are encouraging Hartlepool business leaders and owners to share this service with their employees.
