Increased access to testing for Businesses and workplaces

Published on Thursday, 08 April 2021

Employers in England will be able to offer free rapid coronavirus tests to staff to take at home under the extension of a government scheme. Home kits will be offered to firms with more than 10 employees from 6 April, where on-site testing is not possible.

Businesses need to register by 12 April for the lateral flow tests, which can give results in less than 30 minutes, and they are free until 30 June. Employees will be told to inform their bosses of a positive test result, as well as the NHS, which will then offer them a confirmatory PCR test.

Most businesses in England can register via an application form on the government's website. Charities and some other organisations, including those who are a building society, a partnership or a sole proprietor, will need to register by email, with details listed on the same web page.
