Symptom-free Covid-19 testing for anyone who can’t work from home


Symptom-free Covid-19 testing for anyone who can’t work from home

Testing is available for Surrey residents who aren’t showing any symptoms of Covid-19.

Anyone who needs to leave home for work during national restrictions and can’t get a test through other routes can take a test.

This includes supermarket workers, delivery drivers, construction workers, bus drivers, postal workers, social workers, funeral directors, refuse collectors and many more occupations. You do not need to be classed as a key worker to be eligible for testing.

There are test sites across Surrey, with one in Caterham. Tests can be booked using the online booking system.

You can carry on working while you wait for your test result, unless you develop any symptoms. Your result will be sent by SMS or e-mail from NHS Test and Trace within 24 hours.

Anyone with one or more of the following symptoms – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – should book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119.

More information is available at www.surreycc.gov.uk/coronavirustesting.

If you are on a low income and have been told to self-isolate, you can apply for a Test and Trace Support payment of £500. Find out more about the payment on our website.
