Covid-19 variant testing

Lambeth council is asking everyone, aged 16 or over, living or working in the area (pictured) between Norwood Rd and Leigham Court Rd & Valley Rd to get a Covid-19 test, whether they have been vaccinated or not. A variant first identified in South Africa has been detected in the local area. UK government data from various areas across the country shows that the variant is not currently spreading quickly and is being contained.
