If you are sick and think you have symptoms of COVID-19, do not go to work, or move about the community. Seek medical attention as a priority. To speak to someone about your symptoms first, call the Coronavirus Health Information Line for advice: 1800 020 080
To seek medical help from a doctor or hospital, call ahead of time to book an appointment. You will be asked to take precautions when you attend for treatment. Follow the instructions you are given. If you have a mask, wear it to protect others, and stay at least 1.5 metres away from other people. Cover your coughs or sneezes with your elbow.
Your doctor will tell you if you should be tested, and they will arrange for the test. You will only be tested if your doctor decides you meet the criteria.
