COVID clinics

Who should attend?

People will only be tested if they have  fever and/or respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough or sore throat AND documented evidence of:

  • overseas travel in the last 14 days (provide boarding pass or flight booking or airline bag tag with name and date of travel) OR 
  • close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case (provide name of case)

Testing in WA has now been extended to the following groups

  • High-risk settings, as determined by a Public Health Unit
    • Aged and residential care
    • Rural and remote Aboriginal communities
    • Detention centres
    • Correctional facilities
    • Boarding schools
    • Military barracks or equivalent.
  • Geographically localised areas with increased risk of community transmission, as determined by a Public Health Unit
  • Cruise ship passengers who have disembarked in the previous 14 days
  • Hospitalised patients with illness of unknown cause, at discretion of the clinician
  • WA Police officers who are symptomatic.

In addition to the expanded testing criteria, all health care staff will now be prioritised when being tested at COVID clinics across the State. This is part of coordinated effort to protect the health and safety and of our dedicated frontline staff and patients.

Patients who are tested should remain isolated at home, until they receive their test results and further medical advice.

Who should avoid?

Do not attend unless you have symptoms AND meet the above criteria, including documented evidence.

People presenting at COVID clinics may be infectious.

People who don’t have symptoms and evidence will be turned away and asked to self-monitor for symptoms.
