Rapid Response Guidance Note: Testing for Covid-19 and Mental Capacity


CategoryNews Author Neil Allen, Katharine Scott, Alexander Ruck Keene, Nicola Kohn Date

The Court of Protection team has been asked to advise on a number of occasions as to the legal position in relation to testing for COVID-19, especially as testing (a) starts to be more generally available; and (b) is increasingly been rolled out as mandatory in certain settings.

What follows is a general discussion, as opposed to legal advice on the facts of individual cases, which the team can provide. It primarily relates to the position in England in relation to those aged 18 and above; specific advice should be sought in respect of Wales and those under 18.
