A new walk-in pop-up testing site has opened today in Ballinasloe for people who have no symptoms of Covid-19 but who still wish to be tested for the virus.
This brings to seven the number of temporary testing hubs seeking to find asymptomatic infections among the general population that have opened in the past two days.
The centres opening are at the Town Hall and Library car park in Ballinasloe, Co Galway, Naas Racecourse in Co Kildare, Crumlin GAA Clubhouse in Dublin, and Athlone Regional Sports Centre in Co Westmeath.
The site in Ballinasloe will remain open for three days.
The tests are free for local people over the age of 16, with no symptoms.
