New guidance from DHSC pauses regular asymptomatic testing for COVID in staff and residents in care homes in England from Wednesday 31 August.
However, for managers running a care home testing should continue for individuals and staff with symptoms in care homes, and for new residents on admission.
The government continues to encourage all who are eligible to take up booster jabs. Autumn boosters will be available to book through the National Booking Service ahead of the wider rollout, due to start on the 12 September.
Updated guidance on testing in adult social care settings is available online.
