Coronavirus testing in the workplace

More employers have now signed up to the government’s rapid testing scheme to protect the workforce and minimise the spread of Coronavirus.

  • Around one in three people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and may be unknowingly spreading the virus, therefore it is vital that rapid testing is available throughout the country, including in workforces.
  • Government departments are working with NHS Test and Trace to support businesses and public sector bodies to implement rapid testing. An estimated 734,600 lateral flow tests have now been distributed across the public and private sector so far.
  • Rapid workplace testing will offer additional peace of made to those who are unable to work from home during the current lockdown and help minimise the virus being unknowingly spread.
