Offer of testing for PAs displaying Coronavirus type symptoms

23 April 2020

Personal Care Assistants showing coronavirus symptoms or in self-isolation as a member of their household is showing coronavirus symptoms are eligible to be tested.

Direct Payment recipients can now offer their PA’s a test if they meet the criteria – that either they or one or more of their family household members is displaying Coronavirus like symptoms.

Government has chosen to use the term personal care assistant so there is no confusion about other types of personal assistant since they are not currently priority Health and Social Care sector staff.
