Due to an increase in demand for asymptomatic testing across Australia, Clinical Labs is pleased to offer tailored packages for organisations seeking to test their staff for COVID-19.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, temporary changes to the recommended process of diagnostic testing for GDM during pregnancy and for postnatal testing in women who have had GDM may be required. Local health care institutions should make the decision about the appropriate GDM testing protocol for their local population based on demographic factors and local public health data regarding the risk of COVID-19 exposure.
