Following our previous requests for information, we have been advised that the process is now even more streamlined. More info below.
Following SOLT/UK Theatre’s previous requests for information, we have been advised that the process is now even more streamlined such that if you run a business / organisation (which would include a production) that employs 50 or more people, you can register to order tests for employees who cannot work from home.
Organisations can then directly book themselves onto some ‘Intro’ webinars and sign-up to DHSC’s digital platform, Egress, for ordering and receiving tests. As a reminder, the community testing offer is still available via local authorities for organisations with less than 50 employees who have staff that are unable to work from home.
SOLT/UK Theatre continue to engage with government on the issue of access to rapid tests for those working with under 50 people, and will keep you updated on progress.
