A €99 Express COVID-19 Testing Service launches this week in a new Drive-Through Testing Centre at Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
The testing service from Randox, a laboratory partner in the UK’s National COVID-19 Testing Programme, utilises a robust and reliable method of testing known as PCR, which is currently the only method of COVID-19 testing recognised and approved by every country worldwide.
The launch of the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Drive-Through, which offers rapid next day delivery of results, can be used for pre-departure screening, on-arrival testing to reduce quarantine timeframes, or simply for peace of mind.
Sophie Boyd, Project Manager for the Randox COVID-19 Testing Service, explained;
“In addition to our Travel Centres in Dublin, Limerick, Sligo and Galway, we are pleased to open our new Drive-Through testing service in Dun Laoghaire, to serve South County Dublin with our accurate and cost-effective COVID-19 test.
“Whilst restrictions and guidance during the pandemic continue to evolve, testing will remain a key part of the response to COVID-19 – not only to identify outbreaks, isolate cases and prevent further spread, but also to assist with a return to social and economic normality.”
Ireland is currently part of the EU ‘traffic lights’ system which coordinates international travel, meaning that anyone leaving Ireland, currently orange on the traffic light scale, can avoid quarantine on arrival if they obtain a negative PCR test result before departure.
Those arriving in Ireland – depending on their departure country – may be able to reduce their on-arrival quarantine timeframe by taking a COVID-19 test no less than 5 days after arrival.
“The Randox Health COVID-19 testing drive-through at Dun Laoghaire Harbour is another positive step towards the normalization of travel and other social activities, for the residents of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown and across South County Dublin.
“Anyone who is interested in booking a test can do so at the Randox Health booking website, and will have their results returned to them the next day.”
The Randox €99 Express COVID-19 Testing Service is open to all asymptomatic individuals and operates from the Randox Health Drive-Through at Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
Randox Health PCR Testing is also available at Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport, and in Leopardstown Dublin, Limerick, Sligo, Cork and Galway.
