Where to get a COVID test in WA

Article image for Where to get a COVID test in WA

People across the Perth, Peel and South regions are waking to their first of five days in hard lockdown after a hotel security guard tested positive to COVID-19.

There are fears it could be the highly infectious UK strain, and urgent contact tracing and genomic sequencing is now underway.

The security guard is believed to have visited a number of locations across Perth, and anyone linked to any site is required to get tested urgently.

People are being urged to bring water, sun protection and food to testing clinics as long waits are expected.

Masks are mandatory at all times outside the home.

Anyone needing to get tested can do so for free at both public and private COVID-19 clinics.

After your test you are required by law to self-isolate until your test results are returned.
