England: Lateral flow testing for funeral workers

Rapid (lateral flow) testing is now being rolled out across England and, as a profession that cannot work from home, frontline funeral staff fall into the eligible group for testing.

The process is being managed at a community level and NAFD members are urged to check with their local authority as some councils have already established booking systems or walk-in centres.

For example:

The NAFD will continue to work with the government to ensure that the importance of access to testing for funeral sector workers is understood by all local authorities and that provision across the UK is as consistent as possible. We will also continue to work with devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland on their plans for community testing too.
