Do you have COVID-19 symptoms?

Most people no longer need to take a PCR test (nose and throat swab) to confirm you are positive.

Keep others safe

Self-isolate when you get a PCR test, have COVID-19, arrive from overseas, are a household contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, or at high risk of getting COVID-19 from a confirmed case.
