Public Health England have identified an isolated case of the Covid-19 strain first identified in South Africa in the West Norwood area. As a result, Lambeth Council are asking residents living and working in a small area including part of West Norwood and some streets in Streatham to get an enhanced Covid-19 test this week, whether they have symptoms or not. This will help us to slow the spread of the virus and save lives.

Most homes in the following post code areas need to get a Covid-19 test:

  • SE27 0
  • SE27 9
  • SW16 2
