Daily Contact Testing (DCT)
Daily Contact Testing is the regular, daily testing of close contacts of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.
Around one in three people who have COVID-19 have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it. By increasing the positive cases detected, Daily Contact Testing is potentially the best way to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in the community. The trial aims to answer this question, and the safety and progress of the trial is regularly reviewed by a panel of independent experts.
Please see the documents below regarding the DCT trial at Queensbridge.
