If you are a key worker in Bankside or cannot work from home, Southwark Council are encouraging you to get a free rapid Covid test (called a lateral flow test).

The tests are free, painless, available to those who do not have Covid symptoms and the results are usually available within an hour.

Key workers are eligible and this includes those in hospitality or leisure, shop staff, constructions workers, security guards, cleaners, school staff, refuse collectors and many other roles.

Please consider booking regular tests (up to twice a week) for you and your staff.

The test centre is at the Damilola Taylor Centre, 1e Surrey Grove, Peckham SE15 6DR and is open from 18 January. More sites will open soon.
