Free Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) are now available for all community members to collect at the following locations:
Everyone can collect up to 2 packs of 5 RATs per household. Face masks have also been made available. The masks are individual (not wrapped), with a limit of five per person. You do not need a Medicare card.
If you have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, please do not collect RATs until you are well. If you can’t get to a location, a guardian or carer can collect your free RATs for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I have symptoms or I am a contact of a COVID-19 case?
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, do not go to a Council location to collect your free RATs. Instead, please collect free RATs at testing sites which you can find through the coronavirus website here.
Where can I get more information on the use of RATs?
For more information about getting tested and reporting a positive RAT result, visit the Department of Health website here.
Alternatively, you can call the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 675 398.
