The testing criteria for COVID-19 has been expanded at all COVID-19 clinics and testing sites across Western Australia.

Those who can be tested includes anyone:

  • presenting with a fever (≥38°C)
  • with a history of a fever in the last few days OR
  • with an acute respiratory infection e.g. shortness of breath, cough, sore throat

Patients will be screened and where appropriate tested, provided with appropriate information and referred for further medical treatment if necessary. The criteria for testing will be updated according to changes in the disease pattern in WA.

People who do not meet the criteria will not be tested.

People who are tested and well enough will be asked to self-isolate while they await test results, which is generally 48 hours. Anyone who is confirmed to have COVID-19 who does not require hospitalisation will be asked to stay in home isolation as instructed by the public health team.

The community is reminded that the clinics are not intended to replace the medical care available through their GP.

If you are seriously unwell outside of clinic hours please visit your nearest emergency department or call 000 for urgent attention.
