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?
