Growers urged to register for free workplace Covid-19 tests

Employers can register up to April 12 to receive free test kits until the end of June, which could protect growers from taking on the cost of regular Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing and save an estimated £10 million.

 

It follows the introduction of a new testing regime for international arrivals this weekend (April 3 and 4), which requires people who are in the UK longer than two days to take a test before the end of day two and a further test every three days.
