Easier access to rapid testing

Easier access to rapid testing

The Government has now made it easier for employees to access Rapid Testing for COVID-19, using Test at Home Lateral Flow Tests.

If you have 10 or more employees, from early April you’ll be able to order tests for your employees to collect from their workplace and use at home twice a week. You can do this if you cannot provide testing in the workplace.

You must register by 11:59 pm on 12 April 2021. If your business is closed or you cannot provide tests now, you should still register so you can order tests in the future.

Why you should consider signing up to this new offer:

  • Around 1 in 3 individuals with COVID-19 do not display symptoms
  • Testing staff who do not show symptoms of COVID-19 will help to find positive cases earlier and to break hidden chains of transmission
  • Finding cases earlier will help to protect your business and its workforce
  • You will know that your staff are adequately supported to protect themselves, family, friends and work colleagues

For businesses with fewer than 10 employees, you can support your staff by signposting to your local asymptomatic rapid testing site, details of which you can find here
