Jonathan Ashworth responds to the government’s announcement of planned change in workplace testing

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the government’s announcement of planned change in workplace testing, said:

“Extra workplace testing is welcome but so much more needs to be done to make workplaces Covid-secure including improving ventilation and upgraded PPE standards.

“This is even more important when the most recent data shows hundreds of outbreaks in workplaces since the start of January.”
