DHSC announces free tests for all businesses in England amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has announced that every business in England is now able to sign up for a free workplace coronavirus (COVID-19) testing programme, even if they have fewer than 50 employees. Any business wishing to do so must register by 31 March 2021.

Speaking about the announcements, the Federation of Small Business Chairman Mike Cherry said: ‘A workplace testing infrastructure that works for businesses of all sizes as well as consumers is fundamental to bringing the coronavirus under control and ensuring that this current lockdown is the last. It’s great to see that the smallest businesses can now apply to set-up testing facilities on their premises.’

DHSC also issued a reminder that despite the free testing programme, anyone that can work from home should continue to do so.
