DfT is committed to ensuring that every transport worker who requires testing has access. We are engaging closely with stakeholders and DHSC to ensure that a robust testing process is in place for transport workers, whilst recognising that priority needs to be given to patient care, front-line healthcare staff and social care workers. COVID-19 antigen testing is currently available through home delivery kits, regional test sites, satellite sites and mobile testing centres throughout the country.
