New COVID-19 testing site to open in Northwick Park for people with symptoms
5 February 2021
A new local COVID-19 testing site, for people with symptoms, is set to open in Northwick Park on Tuesday 9 February 2021.
The address of the testing site will be: Northwick Park Sports Pavilion, Capital Ring, HA1 3GX.
Getting tested is crucial so that you can know if you’ve got the virus, and if you test positive, your recent contacts can be told to stay at home to stop the spread.
Councillor Neil Nerva, Brent Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health, said:
“I’m so pleased we’ve been able to open a third testing site, once again in the heart of the community, ensuring that those living locally with symptoms can access testing easily.
“This new site will help us increase our testing capacity so we can test even more people and in turn, help to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep Brent safe.”
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 – a fever, a persistent cough or a change in your sense of taste or smell – you must stay at home for 10 days and book a test by calling Brent Council on 020 8937 4440. You can also book online, via the NHS COVID-19 app or by calling 119.
Please note, this testing site is for people with symptoms only. If you don’t have symptoms but want to get tested, you should book a rapid COVID-19 test instead. If you can’t work from home, we recommend you get tested twice a week.
