We are aware that in England the test and trace service is going to be important in the overall management of Covid-19. As an employer, what would we be expected to do as part of the test and trace regime?

A

The NHS test and trace service forms a central part of the Government's coronavirus (Covid-19) recovery strategy.

The test and trace service:

  • provides testing for anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus to find out if they have the virus

  • gets in touch with anyone who has had a positive test result to help them share information about any close recent contacts they have had

  • alerts those contacts, where necessary, and notifies them they need to self-isolate to help stop the spread of the virus.
