Symptom-free testing in Camden

It's still possible to catch and spread COVID-19 without symptoms, even after your vaccination. Taking a rapid, lateral flow test (for people without symptoms) twice a week to check you are COVID-free and help stop the spread of coronavirus.


Around one in every three people with COVID-19 have no symptoms so by getting regular lateral flow tests you are helping to stop the spread of coronavirus in the community. These tests are for people aged 12 and over. All tests are free and you can expect results within 30 minutes.


All tests are free and you can expect results within 30 minutes.


Only do rapid lateral flow test if:

  • you do not have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms
  • you’re 11 or older
  • you have not been told to self-isolate
  • you cannot get tests from your work, school, college or university (ask them for rapid lateral flow tests)

Children who go to primary school or younger children do not need to test.

  • Do not use a rapid lateral flow test if you have COVID-19 symptoms. Get a PCR test as soon as possible and self-isolate, even if symptoms are mild.

If you’re not sure, you can find out which COVID-19 test you should get on NHS.UK.
