Priority Testing for Front-Line Staff
Guidance on coronavirus testing for essential workers who are self-isolating.
Who can be tested
Our priority is testing patients to inform their clinical diagnosis. In addition, we are now also testing:
- essential workers with symptoms
- people who live with essential workers and have symptoms
This means essential workers can find out whether they have the virus, and we can help them return to work if they test negative. Testing is most effective within 3 days of symptoms developing.
