The testing facility on the East Arm of the North Beach that usually tests vehicle drivers and passengers that arrive in Guernsey by ferry has been adapted to support the Island’s testing for Covid 19.
If you are waiting for a test you may be called by the Welcome Team or the Scheduling Team and offered a test at this facility. The tests are a supervised self-administered swab test of the throat and nose, and will only be offered to islanders who are identified by the Scheduling Team as being suitable for testing at this facility. Only people with appointments will be tested. Self-administered swab tests are not suitable for children under 12, and they will continue to be tested at the testing centre at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
Testing at this facility will make use of the Travel Tracker. The Travel Tracker has also been adapted so it can recognise people who are from Guernsey. You will need a smart phone or tablet to access Travel Tracker. Even if you have used the Travel Tracker system before you must not register anything until you arrive at the facility. You will need to input a journey into the system, and will be guided through the different inputs required on arrival.
Please note that there will be no public access to the East Arm while testing is taking place.
