If you are in urgent need of mental health support, call one of the following crisis care services:
There are two different tests you can use to check if you have COVID-19 in NSW. Read more information on when to get tested and what type of test to do.
If you do a rapid antigen test and the result is positive, you must register it with Service NSW either on their website or app, or by calling them on 13 77 88. If you need an interpreter, please call 131 450.
Staying up to date with your vaccinations is one simple step you can take to protect yourself against flu and COVID-19 this winter. The COVID-19 and flu vaccines can be given together at the same time.
COVID-19 vaccination is available to everyone aged 5 years and over.
A COVID-19 booster helps you maintain a high level of protection against the virus.
If you’re aged 16 years or over, get your booster dose three months after you received your second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, or three months after COVID-19 infection if you've had the virus since your second dose.
Boosters are available now at NSW Health vaccination clinics, as well as GPs, pharmacies, and Aboriginal Medical Services. Many also offer walk-ins.
People aged 6 months and over can get a flu vaccine. It is free for eligible individuals at higher risk of serious illness or complications from the flu, but some providers may charge an administration or consultation fee.
Ask your GP or pharmacist if this applies to you. Flu vaccines are available from GPs, pharmacies and Aboriginal Medical Services. GPs can vaccinate anyone aged six months and over and pharmacies can vaccinate people aged 10 and over.
See the NSW Government website for information about COVID-19 and flu vaccinations.
The NSW Health website provides information on self-isolation and testing.
Under the Public Health (COVID-19 Self-Isolation) Order, anyone required to self-isolate is legally obliged to comply with the NSW Health guideline.
Information is available for people who have tested positive to COVID-19.
Advice is available for people who live with or are a close contact of a person with COVID-19.
There are no current travel restrictions in place for entering NSW from another Australian state or territory.
All international arrivals to NSW must comply with the NSW Health Guidelines for All International Arrivals for 14 days after arrival.
