Four Covid-19 test centers will be operating in the Westminster borough this week.

Greenside Community Center, in Lilestone Street, Marylebone, was converted into a semi-permanent testing center and opened on Fridays.

Another semi-permanent test site will open tomorrow at Lydford Tenants and Residents Hall in Fernhead Road, West Kilburn.

A third semi-permanent test center will open on Friday at Grosvenor Hall in Vincent Street, Pimlico.

The three new centers will function as transit centers and will be open seven days a week from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.

They are in addition to the mobile testing site operating in Hyde Park.

The North Carriage Drive center is open tomorrow and Friday between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm – and October 21, 22, 27, and 28.

A fifth mobile testing center operated at Paddington Recreation Ground from October 8-10.

A Westminster Council spokesperson said the Paddington Rec testing center “is likely to be used again in the future,” but no data has been confirmed.

All centers are available to people of all ages, but only people who show symptoms can book a test.

Appointments at all test centers must be booked in advance. Make an appointment by going to the NHS website or by calling 119.

Westminster’s infection rate in the seven days before October 9 was 74.6 cases per 100,000 people, after 195 new cases were confirmed in those seven days.

The worst affected of London’s 32 boroughs is currently Ealing, which had an infection rate of 118.8 cases per 100,000 people during those seven days.

Bexley has the lowest infection rate, at 51.6 per 100,000.
