Testing, Testing ...

As part of the continued expansion of regular testing, a major new pilot will consider whether daily testing can offer a safe alternative to self-isolation for those who come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, allowing people to carry on going to work and doing the things they love.

  • The British public have made huge sa\crifices at every stage of this global pandemic – including self-isolating when they have been asked to do so. This is not always at all easy for people. 
     
  • That is why the government is undertaking a major new study of more than 40,000 people which will consider how rapid daily testing could offer a viable alternative to self-isolation for people who are contacts of positive Covid-19 cases, allowing people to carry on going to work and living their lives. 
     
  • Alongside the phenomenal progress of Britain's vaccination programme and the rollout of regular testing, every option is being considered to safely reclaim our lost freedoms as we continue to build back better.
