Swindon-based Zurich Insurance is offering a one-off benefit of Covid-19 antibody (serology) testing for all employees and their immediate families living in the same house over the age of 18.

A successful pilot was conducted in Switzerland and a full scale offering is now being rolled out to the rest of the globe. Most importantly, employees will not be required to disclose their test result and testing remains entirely optional.

John Keppel of Zurich UK, said:

“It’s not surprising that our survey sample showed up to 95% of Zurich UK’s 4,500 employees expressed an interest in receiving this test so we intend to make them COVID secure and easily available. We have chosen Bupa as a reputable and trusted provider. They will be administering approved antibody testing on our behalf.”
