Weekly COVID-19 Testing for Cream Team
Regular testing helps stop the spread of COVID-19 within the home that you work in. It helps to keep yourself, your family, your work colleagues and the service users you care for safe.
Due to this, we are now rolling out weekly testing for all members of the team.
Once a week, we will invite all staff to be tested via the COVID testing portal.
You will receive an SMS inviting you for a test.
If you have already had a test in the last 7 days, ignore the SMS and email or WhatsApp your result to us.
If you haven’t had a test in the last 7 days, please get tested and send via email or WhatsApp your results.
We will then keep a record of your results and forward your result to the homes when requested.
Please note that by not supplying us with evidence of a negative test result in the past 7 days, it greatly limits the number of shifts available to you as most homes are now requesting evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result.
If you are working in a Care Home for the elderly, the home will be organising 2 lateral flow tests a week on top of the weekly PCR testing.
