Rapid Antigen Tests

Positive COVID Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) results no longer require confirmation via a PCR test.

However, positive COVID RAT results will be required to be self-reported to the Department of Health via a web form, or by calling 1800 675 398

Positive cases will then receive an SMS providing information on how to care for themselves, including COVID Positive Pathways and isolation end date.

The web form is available here:

COVID-19 Call-to-Test service

The Call-to-Test service is for people who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms and cannot leave home due to injury, mobility or other eligible reasons.

The Call-to-Test service is available to:

  • people with an injury, chronic health issue, or frailty affecting mobility
  • people with moderate to severe physical or psychosocial disability
  • people with moderate to severe mental health or behavioural issues not otherwise classified as a psychosocial disability
  • carers for a person with moderate to severe disability.

You must be over five years of age to access this service.

Close contacts without symptoms can use the Call-to-Test service if they have been told by the Department of Health to get tested and meet any of the criteria listed above.

Call the coronavirus (COVID-19) hotline on 1800 675 398 and select option 4 and then option 5 to find out if you are eligible for this service.

When you call the hotline, they will ask you if you have a referral from a general practitioner. If you have a regular GP, you can get a referral from them by calling them.

If you don’t have a regular GP, a telehealth consultation can be arranged for you when you call the coronavirus hotline.
