Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) standard operating procedure: symptomatic and asymptomatic staff testing. England only

NHS England and NHS Improvement have updated guidance on staff testing to reflect the changes to the UK Health Security Agency’s COVID-19: management of staff and exposed patients or residents in health and social care settings guidance. It replaces previous standard operating procedures (SOPs) and FAQs for lateral flow device (LFD) use in NHS trusts and primary care and use of LFD for vaccination sites.

The updated guidance can be found on the NHS England and NHS Improvement website
