Residents in Camden can now get a Covid test even if they don’t have symptoms of the virus. 

Camden Council is offering free lateral flow tests for people without symptoms but who cannot work from home, meaning they have to travel to work.  

The tests are available at Swiss Cottage Library; 33-35 Jamestown Road in Camden Town; the Charlie Ratchford Centre in Chalk Farm; and Triton Café near Great Portland Street tube station.   

Having started on Tuesday (January 19), the scheme is for people who cannot work from home, or who cannot access testing through their employer. 

Results from a lateral flow test arrive within 45 minutes and are aimed at identifying people who do not have symptoms of the virus, but who may be infectious.
