NSW Health recommends that anyone with respiratory symptoms or unexplained fever should be tested for COVID-19.

This is especially important for:

  • Anyone who lives or works in a high risk setting, including healthcare facilities, aged care and other residential facilities, schools, prisons, and other closed settings
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • People who are close contacts of a confirmed case or who have returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • Anyone admitted to hospital
  • People who reside in areas for increased testing and surveillance (Note: these areas are updated weekly).

Please make sure any health care or aged care workers or residents are noted on the laboratory request form so their test can be prioritised.

See NSW Health Advice for more criteria.

Asymptomatic people do not require testing, except in special circumstances such as recovered cases wishing to return to work in a health care facility, aged care facility or other high-risk clinical setting, or the person is part of a public health unit outbreak investigation. For further advice please see the COVID-19 control guideline for public health units or call your local public health unit on 1300 066 055.
