Vulnerable settings continue to be offered regular asymptomatic testing for staff and for service users, particularly those who are at high risk of severe illness if they were infected with COVID-19. This includes health and social care settings and prisons. Workplace testing has also continued for those who work in operational roles at the United Kingdom border and in education. We have no plans to resume provision of free tests to other types of workplaces. However, employees can continue to access free tests through Pharmacy Collect, online ordering or 119.
