Creating a healthier, better connected Gippsland.

RATs preferred means of testing

Morwell and Bairnsdale Respiratory Clinics will cease operating on 30 September 2022.

Rapid antigen tests (RATs) are the preferred means of testing for COVID-19 for most Victorians. They are quick and accurate, particularly if you have symptoms or if you have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19.

RATs are available at most pharmacies and some retailers such as supermarkets. Only use tests that have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). See the TGA’s list of approved tests here, including links to videos on how to use each test. This list is updated regularly.
