Sellafield’s COVID-19 test centre is to expand. From Monday 23 November 2020, the service is being expanded so that households of employees can also use it.
Martin Chown, Sellafield Ltd chief executive, said: "We took the decision to establish our own test and trace facility back in March 2020.
"Thanks to the support of our owner, the NDA and our public health partners we were able to get the centre up and running quickly.
"It has allowed us to track the spread of the virus on the Sellafield site in real time, helping us to maintain safety and security throughout the pandemic.
"We’re pleased to be able to extend the service to households of Sellafield Ltd employees."
