What you need to know before visiting a
COVID-19 testing clinic

Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, even if mild and even if you are vaccinated. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of taste or smell. Other reported symptoms include fatigue, acute blocked nose (congestion), muscle pain, joint pain, headache, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, unexplained chest pain and conjunctivitis. It is important to maintain high testing rates to identify as many cases in the community as quickly as possible.

To get tested visit one of the COVID-19 clinics listed, call your GP or call the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 020 080 (24-hour help line).

Once you have been tested, you must go straight home and self isolate until you get your result, unless advised otherwise by NSW Health. Don’t stop off along the way.

Getting tested for COVID-19 is free, convenient and easy. When a General Practicioner (GP) referral is required for a private testing clinic, please check with your GP as GP charges may apply. COVID-19 testing for travel clearance purposes is conducted at private pathology clinics only. Charges may apply for COVID-19 testing services for travel.

Information on how to receive your test result, including how to register for SMS, is provided when you get tested. Results typically take 24-48 hours.

Translating and interpreting services are available at clinics. Ask the clinic to call 131 450.

If you are unable to go to a testing clinic

If you need a COVID-19 test and can't go to a testing clinic, refer to COVID-19 testing at home.
