Covid Testing in Callander

Residents across Stirling who do not currently have any symptoms of Covid-19 can voluntarily attend the Coronavirus testing unit, which will be available at McLaren Leisure Centre in Callander.

There is also the opportunity to pick up Lateral Flow Device (LFD) testing kits to take home in a pack of seven.

There is no need to book and testing is available at McLaren Leisure Centre, Mollands Road, Callander, FK18 8JP on the following times and dates:

  • Wednesday 28 July: 12pm-4.30pm
  • Thursday 29 July: 9.30am-4.30pm
  • Friday 30 July: 9.30am-4.30pm
  • Saturday 31 July: 9.30am-4.30pm
  • Sunday 1 August: 9.30am-4.30pm

The testing units are part of a national programme of walk-in testing. The initiative aims to drive down local Covid-19 rates by identifying positive cases more quickly, as people can spread the virus to others before symptoms appear and many may not experience any symptoms at all.

Test results will be available in around 45 minutes and can be received at home rather than having to wait at the testing facility. Anyone with a positive test will be asked to undertake a confirmatory PCR test.
