Coronavirus testing centre to open in Monaghan

A coronavirus testing centre is expected to open in Monaghan in the coming days.

There is disquiet locally with a number of people reporting long waits for tests or having to travel to other centres.

The latest HSE figures show Monaghan remains the only county without a confirmed case of Covid-19.

Cathaoirleach of Monaghan County Council Seamus Coyle is also a member of the HSE’s Regional Health Forum in the North-East.

He told Shannonside Northern Sound that a number of people have come to him with their concerns about testing but he’s been told a centre will open in Monaghan soon.
