Employers – register to order free rapid lateral flow Coronavirus tests

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, employment specialist David Dixey highlights the new measures in place to help prevent the spread of the virus.

From early April businesses with ten or more employees will be able to order free lateral flow tests for employees to use at home twice a week. This may be suitable for businesses who are unable to provide testing in the workplace, or are currently closed under the restrictions. 

To be eligible businesses must: -

  • Register (via www.gov.uk/get-workplace-coronavirus-tests) by 11.59pm on 12th April 2021.  This is necessary even if your business is closed; you must still register by this deadline so you can order tests in the future.
  • Be registered in England.
  • Have employees who cannot work from home.

This service should not be used if your employees have symptoms.

The UK Government website contains more information and guidance regarding onsite testing and health and safety in the workplace relating to the Coronavirus pandemic.
