Calling everyone living in ME15

Everyone living within the postcode ME15 will soon be offered a Covid test at home after the South African variant of Coronavirus may have been found in the area.
door to door testing in ME15

Door to door testing will begin in the ME15 area from today (Feb 2nd).

Staff from Kent Police, Maidstone Council and Kent Fire & Rescue will be knocking on doors and offering everyone over the age of 16 a test on their doorstep.

Even if you've just had a test, or have a test booked, it is important that you go ahead with this test too.

It's quick and easy to do, and could help to reduce the spread of the new South African variant.
