Businesses in England: Register for mass workplace testing


Free Covid-19 tests are available in for workplace testing of staff that cannot work from home.

The government is providing employers with 50 or more employees with lateral flow testing kits to test their staff that cannot currently work from home, or who will return to the workplace as the economy opens up as set out in the Roadmap announced on 22 February.

Test kits are available for free until 30 June 2021 for companies that have registered by 31 March. You can register here https://www.gov.uk/get-workplace-coronavirus-tests

The Department for Health and Social Care can also offer advice and guidance to support setting up testing facilities, along with a list a list of accredited private providers who can organise testing on your behalf if preferred.

UKFT is in constant dialogue with the government and is outlining the latest support available for UK fashion and textile businesses here. We will update our website as new guidance becomes available or the situation changes.
