The Mall Blackburn has installed a new Collect+ terminal so shoppers can order COVID-19 test kits prior to travelling abroad.
The new terminal accepts Collect+ deliveries and returns with the additional benefit of the Randox Testing Kits collection service.
From 4 October, the rules regarding testing and isolation for travelling changed for those who are double jabbed. They won’t need to test before arriving in the UK but are still required to take a PCR test on day two after returning from any country on the green list.
Rules for people who haven’t had the vaccine and are above the age of 18 remain the same as previously, with a PCR test required within three days before returning to the UK as well as a test on or before days two and eight.
They can also opt to take part in the test to release programme and test on day five of their quarantine period.
Shoppers simply need to order the necessary testing requirements online and then select The Mall Blackburn as their participating Collect+ retailer.
Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “We’re pleased to be offering the Randox testing service here in The Mall as more countries are placed on the green travel list ahead of the October half-term holidays.
“Customers can collect their pre-departure kits, day two, day five and day eight kits to ensure they have everything they need ahead of travelling.”
Once completed, the tests can be returned to Well Haslingden, 27 Manchester Road, Haslingden, Blackburn, BB4 5SL.
