COVID-19 tests for everyone working in Social Care.

Petition Details

Make tests for Corona Virus available so that Carers/ Support workers/ Management teams can continue to deliver care to the vulnerable people they support.

Additional Information

Because frontline care workers and management teams cannot be tested, they are having to self-isolate because a person they may live with/ member of the family is displaying symptoms even when they themselves have no symptoms of the virus. This can leave vulnerable people without support and the care they need.

Being able to test for the virus could mean the worker returning to work within two days instead of two weeks.
