Holding answer received on 04 June 2020

We do not publish testing data broken down by site. As of 3 June 2020, there are 156 operational test locations which consist of a combination of many different types of site from large multi-lane drive-in sites to single van mobile test facilities to walk-in city centre locations. They are staffed by a number of different commercial organisations and the armed forces. Each of the contracts spans multiple disciplines.
