Weekly testing available for personal assistants in EnglandWeekly testing available for personal assistants in England

NHS Test and Trace is making weekly COVID-19 testing available to personal assistants working in adult social care in England, if they provide care that requires them to come within 2 metres of an adult over the age of 18 who they support.

A 'personal assistant' is defined as someone who is directly employed by an individual (or self-employed) to provide care and support to enable them to live as independently as possible, including support in the home or out in the community.

Personal assistants will be responsible for ordering test kits every 28 days, or an employer can order test kits for their personal assistant.
