Open Letter to Employers re Covid-19 Testing Requirements for Employees


The UKMFA have written an open letter for employees to share with their employers who are requiring their healthy, asymptomatic employees to perform regular testing (Lateral Flow Test or PCR) for Covid-19. We appeal to employers to refrain from encouraging any further mass testing of asymptomatic individuals for Covid-19.

We outline how the rate of testing has significantly increased and how this approach threatens the restoration of the economy, as a large proportion of the healthy workforce are having to isolate unnecessarily, causing shortages independent of any clinical illness. We set out specific reasons for our concerns regarding: the reliability/validity of testing for Covid-19, the prevalence of clinical disease, and the restoration of viable businesses.
