Coronavirus testing guidance for employers

Coronavirus testing guidance for employers

Some employers and third-party healthcare providers may want to introduce their own internal testing programmes outside of the NHS Test and Trace service.

This guidance will help them ensure that their testing programmes are as reliable and effective as possible. It covers:

– legislation, regulations and best practice

– virus and antibody testing

– how to interpret test results

– next steps after a positive or negative test

Important: The NHS Test and Trace service is for those who display symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been advised to take a test by a medical practitioner or public service.

Employer and third-party healthcare providers wishing to provide a test to staff must not advise individuals without symptoms to get a test from the limited supply offered by the NHS Test and Trace service, but may offer alternative private provision, in accordance with this guidance.
