Testing for staff
Fri, 15 May 2020

All council key workers or those that cannot work from home who show symptoms of COVID-19 or live/work with someone else that does can be tested.

It's very easy, staff themselves or their manager simply email the name of the worker, job title/department and contact mobile number to staffscreening@eastriding.gov.uk

There is no need to explain if it's the member of staff showing symptoms or someone they live with, it is just the staff members' details that are needed, as above. Any questions can come through to this email address as well.

The NHS will then contact the member of staff directly - in many cases the same day - to arrange an appointment for the following day. They will take information as to how many people in the household require testing. 

Please note testing must take place within the first 3-5 days of the onset of symptoms and is most effective on days two or three. Ideally referrals for an appointment to the council should occur within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.
