Who should get tested?
Anyone with symptoms, or those that have visited any of the exposure sites during the dates and times indicated should get tested as soon as possible.
Symptoms can include: fever, coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, headache, muscle or joint pains, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, loss of sense of smell, altered sense of taste, loss of appetite and fatigue.
While you are waiting for your test results, you must isolate and stay at home. The Department of Health and Human Services is providing a one-off $1500 payment designed to financially support Victorian workers who are self-isolating or quarantining at home because they are waiting for test results, have been diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19) or are a close contact of a confirmed case.
