A NEW rapid test centre has opened in Worcester Park this week. 

The Maple Lodge site will only be available for residents who do not display coronavirus symptoms.

Testing for all residents is now available at both Maple Lodge and Hill House (Bishopsford Road, St.Helier).

Lateral flow tests can detect the presence of Covid-19 and allows the government to track the virus earlier to prevent the spread of infection.

This Is Local London:

It involves a swab of the nose and throat to collect a sample, which is then inserted into a tube of liquid for a short time. Drops of liquid are added to the test strip (lateral flow device) and present results after around 30-minutes.
