COVID-19 tests available at all Brent libraries

26 August 2021

Free rapid lateral flow test kits are now available at every library in Brent.

"It’s really important to keep taking the Covid-19 tests, and to self-isolate if you test positive," said Cllr Neil Nerva, Brent’s Cabinet Member for Public Health, Culture and Leisure.

"Testing kits for people without symptoms are available in libraries and Brent Civic Centre for you to pick up and take home at your convenience. These LFT tests are easy, quick, and you will get your results in 30 minutes. I urge everyone to take advantage of this service. The virus is still with us, and we still need to be careful. We need to keep ourselves and each other safe."

The tests are available at Ealing Road Library, Harlesden Library Plus, Kilburn Library, Kingsbury Library, Wembley Library and Civic Centre and The Library at Willesden Green. Find the library opening times here.

If you are showing symptoms of Covid-19, you will need to self-isolate and take a PCR test – even if you have been fully vaccinated.
