Two Wexford-based Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test Centres developed by the Department of Transport in response to new regulations from the French authorities for truck drivers heading to France have gone into operation this week.

Centres have opened at the Gorey Circle K Service Station at Ballyellin, on the M11 near Gorey, and another at Holmestown Waste Management Facility, near Larkin’s Cross, on the N25, a few miles from Wexford town. Both facilities will benefit hauliers using the ferry services at Rosslare Europort.

New regulations in France require all commercial drivers to produce evidence of a negative Covid-19 test on arrival in that country came into this week.

Truck drivers are advised to pre-book their tests online to avoid build-up at the centres and drivers can have their test within 72 hours of their journey to satisfy the French regulations.
