For the next two weeks meat and poultry workers will have access to asymptomatic testing.
These workers may present at your testing site with a document (see Figure A). On presentation of the letter shown (paper or electronic) you should provide a test, regardless of symptoms.
These tests should not be prioritised for processing.
Advice after their test:
- If workers are asymptomatic, they can go back work, i.e. they do NOT have to isolate.
- If workers are symptomatic (suspected cases) they are required to isolate like anyone else.
- The document contains a QR code, that will capture their employment information so that we can track uptake of this initiative.
- There is no action required by testing sites, but please encourage workers to complete the on-line form if they have not already.
