Stay safe at work, get a rapid test
Rapid COVID-19 tests are available for anyone without coronavirus symptoms who needs to leave their home for work.
You can book an appointment via lewisham.gov.uk/community testing for a rapid, lateral flow test at the following Community Test Centres:
- Civic Suite, Catford
- The Green Man, Bromley Road, Downham (opening Mon 25 January)
Staff who continue to go into work should get tested regularly. Anyone who lives with you or is in a support bubble with your household can also get tested.
Tests are processed on site, meaning that a test result can be returned quickly on the same day, usually within an hour.
Test appointments must be booked in advance. Some walk-in slots may be available – please check the website before coming to a Rapid Test Centre.
1 in 3 people with COVID-19 don’t have symptoms and may be spreading the virus without realising.
Rapid tests are only for people who don’t have symptoms. If you do have COVID-19 symptoms, you must stay at home (self-isolate) and book a test via nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119. Do not come to a Rapid Test Centre if you have coronavirus symptoms.
