Workplace rapid testing
Workplace testing is now available to all businesses of any size.
Employees will be given lateral flow devices so testing can be carried out and results received within 30 minutes.
Around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 do not show any symptoms. This testing is aimed at people who do not have symptoms who would otherwise not have been detected.
Individuals who receive a negative lateral flow test result should still continue to practice social distancing, hand washing and wear face coverings.
Register for workplace testing
All businesses can apply for the national workplace rapid testing programme if employees cannot work from home.
Businesses must register by 12 April 2021. Register for testing via the Government's online portal.
