- Regular testing should take palace for all individuals attending or working at adult day centres
- Staff: should test weekly using PCR tests and twice weekly lateral flow testing
- Service users – that are able to test should test weekly with lateral flow tests, 3-4 days apart. If a service user is only attending once a week that they need to test on that day.
- Day Centres must be signed up to the government scheme via self-referral portal to gain access to testing
- once centres are approved on their system, tests kits can be ordered every 21 days for their workers and service users
- from 1 July adult day care centres can use a multiple-registrations spreadsheet (bulk upload). The spreadsheet will let you register both PCR test kits and rapid lateral flow tests at the same time
- read the guidance and download the multiple registration spreadsheet to record the details of people you’ve tested for coronavirus on that day
- this is an additional option and organisations can still upload their testing data using the self-registration / reporting route
