Covid-19 Self Testing Update for All Staff
With high levels of Covid-19 circulating in the community, it remains crucially important that staff continue to self-test using Lateral Flow Tests (or PCR if you are one of the departments using that method). LFTs continue to detect on average 10-12 asymptomatic staff per month across the Trust. This means that these staff have disrupted and broken the Covid-19 ‘chain of transmission’ – protecting our patients, colleagues and vulnerable family members. Latest evidence suggests that LFTs remain highly sensitive in detecting the new ‘Omicron’ variant - so they remain a vitally important tool keeping us all safe.
