Workplace testing programme expands to offer free rapid home testing

Department of Health and Social Care press release:

In the next major push for the Government’s workplace testing programme, all employers will now be able to offer their employees free, rapid and regular testing that can be taken at home.

  • Government makes rapid home testing available for all businesses with over 10 employees who cannot offer on-site testing
  • Businesses must register interest by 12 April to access free tests
  • Over 60,000 businesses already registered for regular and rapid tests for employees

Over 60,000 businesses across the country have already registered their interest to provide rapid tests to key workers. From 6 April, the workplace testing programme will supply home test kits to companies with over 10 workers where it is not possible to set up testing on-site, due to a lack of space or because companies operate across multiple sites.
