You can no longer order free rapid lateral flow tests for your employees.

Instead you can:

  • buy your own tests and set up your own workplace testing
  • pay an approved provider to provide tests or run a test site for you

If you cannot provide testing, you can ask your employees to get a rapid lateral flow test at home or at a test site.

PLEASE NOTE: 

Rapid lateral flow testing aims to break the chains of transmission by detecting coronavirus (COVID-19) in people who are not showing symptoms.  Around one in three people who have coronavirus (COVID-19) have no symptoms and may be unknowingly spreading the virus.

Testing is not a substitute for all the other measures that need to be in place to make a workplace Covid secure
, but is an additional measure which may increase the confidence of the workforce to attend work and may reduce the risk of workplace outbreaks which can result in larger numbers of staff being required to self-isolate.
