Letterkenny Covid centre in online pilot for advance bookings

Letterkenny is among three Covid centres that’s part of a HSE pilot new online system to enable advance booking of COVID-19 tests.

From today, (Tuesday), people living in the vicinity of Citywest, the National Show Centre Swords in Dublin, and Letterkenny will be able to log on to the online system and book their COVID-19 test up to 24 hours in advance.

Work is currently underway to extend this online booking facility to other COVID-19 test centres around the country.

Niamh O’Beirne, HSE National Lead for Testing and Tracing, says making COVID-19 testing as accessible as possible is a key part of the HSE’s management of COVID-19

This online system will help make COVID-19 testing more available and will mean that in these three locations, those seeking a COVID-19 test – whether symptomatic or asymptomatic — can attend a walk-in centre or book their test online in advance.
