COVID-19 clinics

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:

  • Fever
  • Chills or sweats
  • Cough
  • 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 5 rapid antigen tests (per person) from a COVID-19 testing site. 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.
