An issue with the booking portal resulting in some users being directed to tests sites a long distance from them has been resolved. There is now a travel restriction set at 75 miles. A few regional testing slots may remain visible outside of the 75 mile radius, but we continue to investigate and seek solutions to address these rare anomalies.
