Symptom-free coronavirus testing for workers (Camden)
Camden Council is offering symptom-free coronavirus testing for workers
Camden Council is offering free rapid COVID-19 tests for people who do not have symptoms and must leave the house for work. Tests will be available for people who live or work in the borough and:
- Cannot work from home and therefore have to leave their house to travel to work
- Cannot access any form of COVID-19 testing from their employer.
Tests have a 45-minute turnaround time and aim to identify people who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 but may be infectious so could still pass it onto someone else. The tests help to protect them and other members of the community – particularly those at highest risk.
If you are an employer, and do not currently have your own testing facilities set up, we encourage you to share this information with your staff and work with them to support them to get tested during the centre’s opening hours.
We are offering Lateral Flow Testing to our communities because we want to do all we can to keep people safe.
