  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Revealed: The sectors where workers may be exempt from NHS ‘ping’ for Covid isolation | ITV News” – below is their description.

    The long-awaited list of workers who could skip Covid isolation if they are “pinged” by the NHS Test and Trace app has been released by ministers amid growing pressure.

    Workers can now find out if they will be exempt from the isolation rules after the government released a list of sectors which could grant people eligibility.

    The latest guidance only applies to those who have had two doses of the vaccine and are fully vaccinated.

    People will still need to self-isolate if they have tested positive for Covid-19 and will be expected to remain in isolation when not carrying out their roles.
