Emergency workers and transport staff added to Covid ‘test to return to work’ scheme | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Emergency workers and transport staff added to Covid ‘test to return to work’ scheme | ITV News” – below is their description.

Emergency workers – including police, firefighters and Border Force staff – and some transport workers will be included in the “test to return to work” scheme that was initially launched for food supply workers to avoid staff shortages from the “pingdemic”.

The “test to return to work” scheme means those who have received an NHS Covid 19 app alert to self-isolate, or have been called by Test and Trace, will be able to continue working if they test negative for coronavirus.

The scheme applies to everyone and not just those who are double vaccinated.
