Government Boost to Rapid Workplace Testing

Government Boost to Rapid Workplace Testing
16th February 2021 c360admin


A new government drive to increase workplace testing in sectors open during lockdown, to detect coronavirus (COVID-19) in people who are not showing symptoms, has been launched.

The government has widened the criteria for joining the testing programme from businesses with more than 250 employees to businesses with more than 50.

Around one in three people who have coronavirus (COVID-19) have no symptoms and may be unknowingly spreading the virus. This expansion of testing will find more positive cases, keeping workers who cannot work from home from unknowingly passing on the virus.
