Testing Pods Help Sectors Exempted From Isolation Rules
UK manufacturer believes self assembly pods offer route to safe, swift and easy onsite testing.

The rules allow daily testing rather than isolation for supermarket depot workers, and food manufacturers. A separate scheme allowed the same for double vaccinated workers in transport, emergency services, border control, energy, digital infrastructure, waste, the water industry, essential defence outputs and local government.
West Bromwich-based Wrights Plastics believe a product they developed earlier in the pandemic offers the chance for employers in these sectors to facilitate onsite mass testing of staff.
In response to Government schemes for mass onsite rapid flow testing in 2020, the company designed & manufactured a low-cost flat-pack Covid19 testing pod that could be assembled quickly. The standalone pod could be linked to others to create an onsite testing centre.
A spokesperson for the company stated "The testing pod proved very popular, and we believe it is ideal for organisations within the exempted sectors to offer onsite testing that is safe, fast and easy – minimising disruption to the working environment & allowing organisations to work close to maximum, which is the reason for their exemption in the first place."
The testing pods are made from high grade acrylic making them lightweight but stable, and easy to clean and sanitise.
