Applying for a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Test

Everyone in Wales, including children, is entitled to request a Coronavirus test if they are experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19. For additional information about this, please see our Testing FAQs.


Testing Options

You may be able to choose between:

  • Regional testing site – Abercynnon
  • Mobile testing units – Please see below map
  • Local testing site – Treforest

Our mobile testing units (MTUs) regularly move around the localities served by Cwm Taf Morgannwg to ensure that all of our population has access to COVID-19 testing. We are guided by our surveillance data on hotspots and local rates of infection when deciding where to locate these units.

In addition to these MTUs, our population has access to a regional testing site which is permanently located in Abercynon, as well as a local testing centre in Treforest.


Symptom Checker

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result. The main symptoms are:

  1. A high temperature – This means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature).
  2. A new, continuous cough – This means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).
  3. A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – This means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
