Covid 19 Testing Castle Point - Update

As part of increased arrangements for testing a new collect and drop off-centre is being provided at the Castle Point Borough Council Offices Kiln Road Benfleet Essex where residents who do not have Covid symptoms or who are not a known contact of people  with symptoms  can visit to  collect a test to carry out at home.

These tests are specifically for people aged between 11-18 and their families.

You can collect a test kit from the Main entrance to the Council Offices between 9am and 3pm Monday to Friday and return the completed test to the Council Offices to be sent for analysis.

Results will be sent directly to you.

  • Please do Not visit the Council Office if you have COVID symptoms
  • Please do Not visit the Council Offices if you know you have been in contact with a person with Covid symptoms

If you fall into either of these categories you should go on-line, you will be given the option to visit a test centre or have a test sent to you by post.

Also you should NOT have a test if you have previously tested positive via a PCR test in the last 12 weeks – as this can give a false result.

When visiting the Council Offices – remember you must wear a mask and keep a safe distance.
