Coronavirus (COVID-19)—daily contact testing to be offered to additional sectors

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced that daily coronavirus (COVID-19) contact testing will be offered to increased emergency service and critical workers in England who would otherwise need to self-isolate. An estimated 200 additional testing sites will be provided to frontline police and fire services and Frontline Border Force staff will be able to take part in the Border Force run testing centres. Testing sites will also be established to support England’s transport and freight systems. The testing will be available for eligible workers who have received alerts from the NHS COVID-19 app or have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace and told they are a contact and must isolate.
