About the Event
It's great to see the vaccine starting to work across the UK. However, we cannot ignore that living with Covid is something that will be part of our lives in the future. Testing is expected to be a key tool in managing outbreaks and limiting further casualties.

Key Questions to be addressed in this session:
- What Covid testing is done by other industries?
- How can we adopt best practice into Hospitality?
- How accurate are Lateral Flow tests?
- How can I manage testing for my team?
- What are the costs involved and what government support is available?
- What is Test-to-Fly and Test-to-Release?
