under updated policy, you isolate, you can be investigated if your positive and face action for it... read the updated 24th one, government reccomends, tesco says stay off.

Will we get given full pay though or just sick pay after 3 days?

So I tested positive, I'm currently on holiday I know I wont get the hours back but if i wait until tomorrow or Monday to tell them I'm positive then do I isolate for 5 days ? Just thinking f*ck it might as well get 2 weeks off  >:D

You get full pay while off with covid positive yes, if you aren't vaccinated for religious reasons or choice then sickness policy applies with wait days i believe.. If you are waiting on another vaccine then you will be, cause your following advice to get vaccinated and doing your part..

As for the above, save the test, tell them you've tested and send a photo of it, policy says you have to isolate, there's a flow chart with it on the covid policy page easy to follow - if positive on EITHER,. A Lateral, or PCR, then you must isolate working for tesco, for a minimum of 5 days, and take another lateral on the 5th in the hopes of returning on the 6th if negative, can be up to 10 days..

Likewise if you have symptoms, you must isolate, you don't need to take a test, just say you've got symptoms and isolate for 5 days, as policy says "if you can get a test" - so if you've got symptoms, at Tesco policy is you should be isolating not going out to buy a test to find out, so just say you ain't got any at home.

Im amazed that tesco are doing this when my current employer are now considering covid nothing more than a cold and insist on staff coming to work with covid.

That would be because tesco surprisingly has voiced to customers about "how we care about staff and customer safety" 😂,  it is weird though it's the only thing they've ever done safety wise... Can't even fix anything else safety wise 😂

Thats because it is just a cold now, there might be the unlucky olymipic gymnast or long distance runner that still gets it bad but its time to move on and stop everyone skiving off at any oportunity.

I wouldn't say it's just a cold, that's a poor outlook on it, it's just poorly managed, going off what nhs would say is government are useless and not protecting them or anyone else... Covid stopped the world for a while, what's going to happen on the next if this one is taken so lightly? 🤔, we don't understand the implications it brings for contracting it atm longterm, so who knows where people will stand or if they will be still standing in a few years..

rupert7
