Expanding the testing programme toelp businesses re-open safely

This weekend it was announced that all businesses in England will now be able to sign up to the Government’s free COVID-19 workplace testing programme, enabling them to reopen safely as the country starts to return to more normal life.

  • Regular workplace testing is a vital part of our route back to normal life and is already working well in larger companies whose workers need to be on site to do their roles – but we want to go further.
  • That is why the government is expanding our offer of free testing to businesses of all sizes, not just those with 50 employees or more. This testing will help identify new cases quickly in workplaces - helping to prevent outbreaks at work and protect employees as we continue to cautiously lift restrictions.
  • Keeping people safe as they return to work is central to the plan to build back better from the pandemic, and with regular workplace testing we can protect the gains we have made and usher in a brighter future.
