GoSafe48, the Irish specialists with a full range of COVID screening testing services, have announced that they have begun expansion with their new company, GoSafe Local, providing private rapid PCR testing in New Ross, beginning immediately.

This is a major development for the company, who run three private testing centres in Dublin and are also responsible for the HSE centres in Wexford, Louth and Kildare, set up earlier this month, with the capacity to test up to a thousand people a day.

The new private service from GoSafe Local will provide rapid PCR with results available by 10 a.m. the following morning. The tests cost €69 per test.

GoSafe48 CEO Maggie Malone, said: “We are happy to announce that private PCR testing, fully approved by the EU and needed for International travel to many countries, is now available in Wexford. It will mean that people who currently have to travel to Dublin the day before flights will be now able to get tested locally.”
