Testing, tracing, and isolating are a core part of the UK’s toolkit in the fight against COVID-19. As the government’s plan to ease lockdown in England is made clear, they are likely to remain so until – and even after – the majority of the UK population is vaccinated.
With up to a third of COVID-19 sufferers showing no symptoms, more widespread asymptomatic testing is one tool in response to the pandemic while enabling safe business operations.
Lateral flow testing in the workplace may play an important role in keeping the Covid-19 virus under control in the coming months. It provides rapid results for anyone, including – crucially – those who are asymptomatic.
At NLT Electrical we want to continue to keep our workforce and our customers safe, and so along with ensuring our engineers wear the appropriate face covering, regular hand washing, using hand sanitiser and maintaining social distancing where possible, we are also carrying out Lateral flow testing twice a week to the entire work force.
This extra measure is protecting both us and our customers, and ensures we can continue to work safely.Posted on 8th April 2021
