With the fantastic vaccine roll-out and dwindling cases, should employers still be thinking of testing employees?
The short answer is YES.
Whilst vaccination has reduced the impact of the most vulnerable on the NHS, evidence is still unclear on whether transmission is reduced. With the lifting of 'lock-down' and the return of school children and universities we will see a rise in cases due to greater social mixing. Coupled with greater freedom to travel both domestically and abroad with new variants scientists predict rising case numbers in the months to come.
These cases may not lead to as great an impact on the NHS but will still impact businesses when employees have to self-isolate. Be prepared. Minter et Al can work with you to set-up your employee testing service whilst taking advantage of the free lateral flow tests offered to employers.
