Free Covid-19 tests for workplace testing of staff that cannot work from home

Companies can now order free lateral flow coronavirus tests for their employees.

Around 1 in 3 people who have Covid-19 have no symptoms and may be unknowingly spreading the virus.

To help stop this, free testing is available to firms to test their workforce.

The government is offering to send employers with 50 or more employees with lateral flow testing kits to test their staff that cannot currently work from home, or who will return to the workplace as the economy opens up.

At companies with fewer than 50 employees, employees should find out if they can get a free lateral flow test from a test site instead.
