COVID-19 assessment and respiratory clinics
If you suspect you may have coronavirus, your first option should be to use a rapid antigen test. Rapid antigen tests are quick and accurate, particularly if you have symptoms or if you have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19.
Symptoms that should prompt people to get tested are:
- Chills or sweats
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath
- Runny nose
- Loss or change in sense of smell or taste.
Even the most mild of symptoms could be a sign of coronavirus.
If you have symptoms or you are a contact, and you can't access a rapid antigen test, you should get a PCR test.
If you can't access either test at the moment, isolate at home until you can.
You can collect rapid antigen tests from your local council. These are for personal use and not for resale.
If you test positive on a rapid antigen test, you must follow your checklist and report your result.
