This help centre article has been written for Koru Kids nanny service

We've written this article for nannies about the Government’s rapid community testing programme, for people who don’t have coronavirus symptoms. It uses lateral flow tests which give results in as little as 30 minutes.

The Government is now encouraging everybody without symptoms to get tested regularly. Our nanny-facing article links to the Government's information and ordering pages.

If you would like your nanny to access this type of testing, we would recommend having a conversation with them. You'll need to think about what works for your particular circumstances, and take note of the current employer guidance from ACAS.

It's also really important to keep following our guidance on working safely in the home even if your nanny has had a negative lateral flow test result.

If you want to find out more about testing, or want to discuss your options further, please feel free to contact us.
