Testing at Levenmouth Swimming Pool must be booked in advance at – www.nhsinform.scot/test-and-protect – or by calling 0800 028 2816.

Josie Murray, consultant in public health and clinical lead for health protection in NHS Fife, said: “The new testing site at Levenmouth Swimming Pool will help to improve access for local people with symptoms of Covid-19. It’s crucial that those who have symptoms of Covid-19, regardless of how mild, isolate immediately and arrange to get tested as soon as possible.”
