Covid: Michael Gove alerted by NHS Test and Trace after Champions League trip



Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove has been สล็อตออนไลน์ alerted by NHS Test and Trace to say he had come into contact with someone with coronavirus.


The senior Conservative had recently returned from Portugal after supporting Chelsea in the Champions League final.


Instead of self isolating for 10 days, Mr Gove will take daily Covid tests as part of a pilot scheme designed to measure testing effectiveness.


The exercise is aimed at finding safe alternatives to self-isolation.


The Cabinet Office earlier confirmed reports that Mr Gove had been alerted by the NHS Covid app.


A spokesman for Mr Gove, who had travelled to Porto with his teenage son, said: "He has followed Covid-19 regulations and guidance at all times and will continue to do so."


Under the pilot scheme, people contacted by Test and Trace are required to take lateral flow tests each morning for seven days.


As long as they test negative they will be able to leave their home "to carry out essential activity".


Up to 40,000 people are expected to be given tests as part of the study.


Downing Street is one of the workplaces taking part in the scheme, which launched on 9 May 2021. The Department of Health has yet to confirm how many other workplaces are in the pilot scheme.


The daily Covid test scheme is an extension of the workplace testing that previously ran as a pilot. It may be extended to people with the NHS Test and Trace app in future.
