Symptomatic testing in high-risk health and care settings will continue for specific groups where infection can spread rapidly among those at higher risk of serious illness. Additionally, during periods of high prevalence, asymptomatic testing is available in these settings. The Government continues to provide free personal protective equipment to staff in National Health Service Trusts and adult social care services to protect against COVID-19 infection.

The Government has updated its guidance on COVID-19 measures for the NHS and the social care sector, which will continue to be reviewed to ensure these measures are effective and proportionate.
