Government launches promotional scheme for workplace testing

by Guy Murphy

Firms who are participating in the government’s free coronavirus workplace testing programme will be able to showcase their involvement through a new voluntary promotional scheme.

Organisations are able to access physical and/or virtual stickers to display to customers and employees. The nationally recognised scheme provides reassurance and confidence that participating firms are going above and beyond to ensure the safety of their premises, staff and customers.

Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 show no symptoms, so anyone could be spreading it without knowing. Regular testing helps identify staff who are carrying the virus without displaying symptoms, reducing the risk of transmission.

The promotional materials are available to download via the online test kit ordering platform.
