Testing for people with COVID-19 symptoms

If you have any of these 3 coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

 you should get a free PCR test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19).

When you use the GOV.UK site to book a PCR test you will be offered a home test kit in the post or an appointment at your nearest test centre. This may be:

  • at one of our fixed testing sites in Crewe or Macclesfield (open 8am to 8pm from Monday to Sunday)
  • at one of the mobile testing units (locations vary daily depending on need) 
  • a testing site outside of Cheshire East if this is closer.

Mobile Test Sites
