A transport company says Rapid Antigen Tests are working well for colleagues over the Tasman. 

Some essential workers will be able to end isolation sooner, once rapid antigen tests are available. 

This will cover people in the supply chain, in particular, around food.  

Mainfreight chief executive Don Braid told Tim Dower his colleagues in Australia use them daily in the carpark before starting work. 

He acknowledges there are some questions over how good the RAT tests are. 

“But it’s certainly giving our people some comfort and they are picking up those infections early.”
