PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

04 March, 2021 — By Camden Council

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

Free, rapid COVID-19 tests with results in 45 minutes are available to these people without COVID-19 symptoms in Camden:
• Parents and carers of primary and secondary school or college age children
• Adults living or working in Camden who need to leave home for work
• Adults who are in close contact with others through care or volunteer responsibilities

Book a test appointment at one of seven community test centres at camden.gov.uk/rapidtest or call 020 7974 4444 (option 9).

You can also pick up a home test kit from the NHS Kingsgate or Ramsay Hall test centres (open 1.30 to 7.30pm every day), or find your closest COVID-19 test centre at find-covid-19-rapid-test-sites.maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk

If you test positive without symptoms using a home rapid test kit, you and your household must self-isolate and book a PCR test, which is sent to a lab – visit nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119.

Most people get their result the next day. Do not go to a rapid test centre with symptoms.
