Covid-19: More Testing for Key Workers

The Scottish Government is working with UK Government to extend testing to a wide range of key workers. Testing will allow symptomatic key workers and their household members to know whether or not they have the virus to help keep essential services running.

This includes third sector frontline services, including homelessness services, who are included in their local authority’s key worker list. Due to high demand for testing, key workers have been prioritised for testing by different categories of work.
