2 Signal Regiment
Troops from York based 2 Signal Regiment are conducting COVID19 testing for NHS Keyworkers at Haydock Park Racecourse near Liverpool.
The ten soldiers from 214 Signal Squadron have been testing at the facility for the past week as part of the Military Assistance to Civil Authority (MACA) taskings ongoing during the Covid situation.
The team of soldiers are working alongside G4S and Boots to operate the drive through lanes at the Haydock Racecourse Testing Centre from 9am to 5pm every day.
The centre is one of 13 across the UK for testing NHS Keyworkers and their families who are self-isolating or symptomatic. The centre has five drive through lanes with appointments booked through the NHS Trusts for those workers needing testing.
