Sign up to FREE email alerts from the Northern Agenda A new study on rapid testing could cut the isolation requirement for people who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.

Around 40,000 people will participate in a study to see whether daily rapid testing could allow people to avoid quarantine after coming into contact with the virus.

Instead of the 10 days of self-isolation currently required, participants will be sent a week’s worth of tests and will be able to go about their lives as before if they test negative that day.
