Rapid Covid 19 testing for businesses
As part of the government’s roadmap to cautiously lift restrictions, all businesses with employees who cannot work from home are being encouraged to take part in twice-weekly Covid 19 testing.
Businesses of all sizes can now offer employees free, rapid and regular testing.
You can either request home kits to distribute to employees, or set up your own on-site testing service.
You have until 12 April 2021 to register for the government’s workplace testing scheme, which will remain free until the end of June 2021.
All those who can work from home should continue to do so.
To find out more about setting up rapid workplace testing and to access this service and order free lateral flow tests to test your employees, please visit the GOV.UK business tests page.
You will be provided with all the information you need to plan and deliver a testing programme, along with promotional materials.
