One in three people who have Covid-19 don’t know they have it.

Welsh Government has announced that community coronavirus testing will take place in several parts of Bridgend County Borough in March, that will target people who are not displaying symptoms of Covid-19.

The testing will take four weeks to complete and will focus upon specific areas which have been selected using data provided by Public Health Wales and Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board.

It will take place specifically within Caerau, Nantyffyllon, Pyle, Kenfig Hill, Cornelly, Cefn Cribwr, Sarn, Aberkenfig, Coytrahen, Ynysawdre, Bryncethin, Bryncoch, Pencoed, Hendre, Felindre and Heol-Y-Cyw.

Testing centres will be set up to support these areas, and all residents within these communities who are aged 11 and over and who are not displaying symptoms of coronavirus will be asked to take part.
