Rapid symptom-free Covid testing for West Norfolk residents is continuing for other week.

From Monday to Friday next week lateral flow tests will be available at St James Pool at King’s Lynn and the Alive Downham Leisure Centre at Downham Market. Opening times will be 8am to 4pm.

People have been urged to take a test, with results in 30 minutes, if they are symptom-free and leaving their home for essential business.

Anyone receiving a positive result will be advised to self-isolate immediately. They will be referred to test and trace and will need to ensure that anyone in their household also self-isolates.

Anyone testing positive for the virus will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace to help track their contacts. 

They will be advised to also book a test if they develop symptoms.

The rapid-result testing is being rolled out through a partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health Norfolk and district councils.
