What to do if you think you have COVID-19:
If you think you have COVID-19 or you have had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 first make a Telehealth appointment with one of our GPs to find out how to get tested.
COVID-19 testing is now recommended if you feel unwell with the following symptoms:
- fever / chills / sweats
- new onset respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell or loss of taste)
If you have any of the symptoms, however mild, STAY HOME and seek advice from your GP by a Telehealth phone consultation first to find out how to get tested.
You can also use this online interactive tool to help you better understand your risk of COVID-19 and precautions you need to take based on your personal circumstances.
If you need a COVID-19 test, you must GO HOME immediately after the test and remain in self-isolation until you receive your test result.
