Business owners are able to offer their employees free, rapid and regular testing that can be taken at home, helping to protect your staff and your business. Lateral flow testing is a fast and simple way to test people who do not have symptoms of COVID-19, but who may still be spreading the virus.
Businesses who are already registered can order free rapid lateral flow tests until 19 July. If you’ve not registered you cannot order free tests. But you can choose to either buy your own tests and set up your own workplace testing or pay an approved provider to provide tests or run a test site for you. If you cannot set up testing, you can ask your employees to check if they can get a rapid lateral flow test at home or at a test site on NHS.UK.
After the end of July, you can direct your employees to pharmacy collect and online ordering to continue accessing rapid lateral flow tests. As we continue returning to normal, twice-weekly testing remains key and we recommend people continue to test.
