Covid-19 testing update

Yesterday the Government announced that they are extending Covid-19 testing to all essential workers with coronavirus symptoms.


The aim of the tests is to remove the uncertainty for those with symptoms so you know whether or not you need to self–isolate. This is particularly important for those who can’t work from home while self-isolating as it impacts on our ability to provide essential services to our most vulnerable residents.

We’re already participating in a National Testing Programme for Covid-19 and the HR team will continue to contact those who are recorded as self-isolating to discuss booking a test at one of the test centres in Derby or Chesterfield.

It’s important that you continue to let your line manager know if you need to self-isolate in line with the latest guidance so that we can offer you appropriate support.
