To protect yourself and your loved ones:

  1. Stay up to date with recommended COVID-19 vaccinations.
  2. Stay home if you have cold or flu symptoms and get tested.
  3. Wear a mask in crowded, indoor places.
  4. Talk with your doctor now if you are at higher risk of severe illness. You may be eligible for antiviral medicines.
  5. Don't visit people who are at higher risk if you have symptoms or COVID-19.

COVID-19 Testing

For most people, if you have COVID-19 symptoms, please do a rapid antigen test (RAT). RATs are available for free at Service NSW service centres, mobile service centres and recovery centres. Find a RAT near you.

If you are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, contact your doctor for testing advice.

If you can't contact your doctor, call healthdirect on 1800 022 222 or use the online Service Finderlaunch to find a GP near you.

If your doctor recommends a COVID-19 PCR test, they will give you a pathology referral form for a free COVID-19 PCR test.

The referral form will have a private pathology provider location to visit so you can get tested.
