Workplace testing scheme expanded



More businesses can now apply for free Covid testing kits under a Scottish Government scheme.

Organisations with 10 or more employees can sign up for the lateral flow kits.

Testing regimes will be voluntary and firms can distribute the kits among employees or use them in workplaces.

Workplace testing was previously targeted at crucial parts of the public sector, national infrastructure and private sector companies with a high risk of transmission.

The workplace testing offer will initially be until the end of September 2021, in line with the universal testing offer. It will include formal volunteers from third sector organisations.

Eligible Scottish organisations can find information on how to apply by clicking here.

Organisations with less than 10 employees can direct their workforce to collect LFD test kits from a local pharmacy or COVID-19 test site, or order online for home delivery .
