Matthew Fell, CBI UK Chief Policy Director, said:
“Rapid mass testing is a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting on top of the virus. The health and safety of staff is paramount for employers, which is why they will be right behind this initiative.
“This expansion of testing will help more critical workers and those unable to work from home to operate safely, while also catching new cases more swiftly.
“Ramping up asymptomatic testing to all workplaces will require hand-in-glove partnership between health services, local authorities and businesses in each and every community.”
