7. Test and Trace service

Read new guidance for employers, businesses and workers on the test and trace service.

In the fightback against coronavirus, it is vital that employers make their workplaces as safe as possible. Although implementing safe working procedures may seem disruptive, it is less disruptive than an outbreak of COVID-19 in the workplace would be.

The NHS Test and Trace service will support businesses by:

  • testing anyone with symptoms of Coronavirus. If they test positive, they and their household can continue to self-isolate;
  • helping to stop the onward spread of the virus;
  • which would eventually allow the nation to return to normal as quickly as possible, if deemed by Government.
