Covid-19 testing: Employer referral portal
12 Nov 2020
Employers can refer essential workers (such as school staff) who are self-isolating either because they, or members(s) of their household have coronavirus symptoms, for testing.
It is a secure portal for employers to use to upload the full list of names and contact details of self-isolating essential workers.
If referred through this portal, essential workers will receive a text message with a unique invitation code to book a test for themselves (if symptomatic) or their symptomatic household member(s) at a regional testing centre.
Schools should already have had a link sent to them to register for the portal.
If your school has not received a link for any reason, you should contact email@example.com or the Coronavirus Testing Helpdesk: 0300 303 2713.
The employer referral portal user guide includes details of how to use the portal as well as a frequently asked questions section.
