No GP appointment will be needed for anyone using the new walk-in Covid-19 test centres that are being created to target areas where positive cases are particularly high.
The aim is to carry out between 300 and 500 Covid-19 tests per day at each walk-in centre.
The public can use the free testing service if they are aged over 16, do not have Covid-19 symptoms, but would like to be tested.
Those looking for a test must bring photo ID with them and provide a mobile phone number so they be contacted with their test results.
The testing centres will be open from Thursday 25th March to Wednesday 31st March from 11am to 7pm.
The walk-in test centres will be open in the following locations:
Blanchardstown Centre, Mr Price Car Park
Grangegorman, Primary Care Centre
Spollens Car Park, High Street, Tullamore
