Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) are now the preferred mechanism for COVID-19 testing. For most members of the community, PCR testing is now only available in special circumstances, via a GP referral. If you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island, PCR testing is available via Rumbalara.  The free RAT test program has now ceased. You now need to purchase RATs from supermarkets, pharmacies, other retail shops, or online. Information about what to do when you test positive for COVID-19 on a Rapid Antigen Test is available via Better Health Channel.
