The National Workplace Testing Programme
The National Workplace Testing Programme has been set up to give COVID-19 support to businesses in the UK. Providing rapid lateral flow tests for employees will identify more positive cases and ensure that infected individuals isolate and so protect those who are unable to work from home and our vital services.
The programme is aimed at those without COVID-19 symptoms and who cannot work from home during lockdown. Companies in England with over 50 staff members, can register on gov.uk to order coronavirus tests for their employees.
Businesses with less than 50 staff, sole traders, the self-employed or members of the public, should visit their local authority’s website for more information about their testing services.
