Testing, testing

The government has announced 1,200 new testing sites to allow thousands more critical workers to test daily instead of self-isolating, to protect staff and minimise disruption

  • Protecting critical workers from infection so that they can perform their key roles, while avoiding staff shortages, is a priority to continue our recovery from the pandemic. 
  • That is why it has been announced that 1,200 extra sites will open to provide daily testing to critical sectors including the armed forces, prisons, and waste management, building upon the 800 sites being set up for our police, firefighters and supermarket staff, so that more critical staff can test rather than self-isolate.
  • Ensuring more sectors are able to continue operating safely by testing rather than isolating, will make it possible to protect staff and our essential public services
