COVID-19 Information and Advice

COVID-19 Information and advice


There has been an increase in cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant (originally discovered in India) in Kingston. Kingston Council has acted quickly and surge testing is now in place for Kingston residents, with an additional PCR testing site having been established in Worcester Park train station car park, on the border with Sutton. 

There is no evidence that these new variants are any more dangerous, but they are spreading more quickly.  In Sutton, we all need to keep following the rules, including taking regular rapid tests to identify asymptomatic cases and stop the spread. 

Please visit our Rapid Testing webpages to find your nearest pick-up location for rapid tests, which are free. If you have a positive rapid test result, please self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test at 


Latest COVID-19 Guidance

Following the government announcement on 14 June, there will be a delay to the 4 step plan. A full update to the guidelines, with advice on support bubbles, childcare, places of worship, care home visits and more, is available on the government website. 

Sutton Council is working with other public agencies locally, regionally and nationally to ensure a robust response to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in London and the UK.
