Construction businesses can get free COVID tests
All construction companies can now register to order free lateral flow COVID tests from the government.
Companies have until the 31st of March to register for the workplace testing scheme, which will remain free until the end of June.
Lateral flow tests can detect positive cases in under 30 minutes and can be carried out regularly.
Health Secretary Matt Hanckock said, “Regular workplace testing is a vital part of our route back to normal life, which is why I’m very pleased that we’re now expanding our offer of free workplace testing to businesses of all sizes.
“I urge all businesses to register their interest in the programme before 31 March to help break chains of transmission and keep people safe.”
