    Rapid antigen tests

    Rapid antigen tests (RAT) are available for free for anyone who is symptomatic, a close contact of a confirmed case or has been directed by Public Health to take one. Eligible people who require a RAT kit need to register their details via the online request form.

    If you return a positive test you must notify your test result via the online declaration form. This is required under the Public Health Act 1997 and ensures you can access the care and support you need and financial assistance if eligible.

    See Types of COVID-19 tests for more information about RATs and PCR tests.
