All local authorities in England are now offering rapid lateral flow testing for small businesses if they can’t offer rapid workplace testing. Businesses can find their local test site here.
A workplace testing infrastructure that works for businesses of all sizes, as well as consumers, is fundamental to bringing the coronavirus under control and ensuring that this current lockdown is the last.
