Test and Trace FSI Fundraiser Conference Assessing the risks after lockdown: What do we need to do?
Test and Trace
The national Test and Trace service was launched on 28/05/20.
The process is as follows:
· Anybody displaying symptoms must self-isolate immediately (along with the rest of their household) and get a test. Everybody, including the under 5s, are now eligible for testing.
· If an individual tests positive they will be asked by NHS contact tracers to provide the details of everybody they have been in close proximity with.
· NHS contact tracers will make contact with those people and ask them to self-isolate for 14 days. This is voluntary at first but may become mandatory- a strong degree of public cooperation will be required.
· A contact tracing app is to be rolled out in coming weeks to support this.
Here are two links to more detailed relevant information NH Test and Trace - how it works and NHS Test and Trace Workplace Guidance. We will ensure that our website, coronavirus line and FAQs are updated in light of this guidance
