COVID-19 Key Worker Testing

Food and Drink Manufacturers are designated key workers, as their work is critical to the COVID-19 response.

The Welsh Government are making changes to speed up coronavirus testing for key (critical) workers in Wales with more test centres across the country, an online booking system and priority for key workers.

Those involved in food and drink production are designated key workers, their role deemed as critical to the Covid-19 response.

This includes those involved in food:

  • production
  • processing
  • distribution
  • sale
  • delivery

There are two new drive-through testing centres, as well as an online booking service starting in Wales this week. The new testing centre in Carmarthen will start testing key (critical) workers on Thursday 30 April. The Showground in Carmarthen will host a new drive-through testing centre for critical workers in west Wales. This will support other existing testing facilities across the west Wales area in Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Haverfordwest and Llanelli, and consideration is also being taken as to how testing capacity may further be strengthened in Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys.

People are asked not to attend any testing facilities without prior arrangement with the health board, as this could adversely affect their ability to provide tests to those who need them.
