Third sector organisations with ten or more employees (which can include formal volunteers) can sign up for asymptomatic workplace testing. This will help to identify emerging Covid-19 cases and stop transmission as Scotland moves beyond level 0.
Organisations can adopt an ‘LFD Collect’ model and distribute testing kits to employees, or establish their own asymptomatic test site (ATS) model in workplaces. The testing offer will initially be in place until the end of September 2021.
Organisations can check their eligibility and get involved by visiting Coronavirus (COVID-19): getting tested in Scotland.
Organisations with less than 10 employees can encourage their workforce to collect LFD test kits from a local pharmacy or COVID-19 test site, or order online for home delivery. For organisations who already have a workplace testing programme in place and would like to expand, they are able to discuss this with their Testing Pathway lead.
A news release on the expansion has more details and it would be great if your organisation could share the tweet on this topic via your social channels. If you have any questions, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
