NHS Test and Trace is offering PCR and rapid lateral flow testing to adult day care centre staff and service users in England. We are offering routine testing to reduce infection risk in open adult day care centres and to identify any positive cases in these settings as early as possible.
Eligible day care centres are those that are open and run by paid day care staff. Services must be for adults over 18 and provided within non-residential care settings that support the health and wellbeing of adults. This includes settings such as:
purpose-built day care centres
day centres attached to or part of a care home or supported living
other buildings in communities specifically used for regular adult day care
