Daily contact testing

Over the weekend the government announced an expansion of daily contact testing to emergency services and some transport sectors, ensuring that frontline workers can continue to keep us safe while remaining protected from the virus.

  • As part of the targeted contact testing of workers, we have engaged with the emergency and transport sectors to understand how workers can continue to safely deliver their vital services, despite cases rising in the coming weeks.
     
  • That is why the government is expanding our contact testing scheme to police and fire services, Border Force, and some transport workers, replacing self-isolation with daily testing for those identified as contacts of people with coronavirus, with an expected 200 additional testing sites being opened.
     
  • By doing this we can ensure our emergency and transport services will continue to keep us safe while offering them protection from the virus.
