Getting tested is the best way to tell if your cold and flu like symptoms are because of COVID-19.
On 1 July 2022, Victoria’s mass PCR testing program was scaled back.
If you are asymptomatic, you are encouraged to take a Rapid Antigen Test. You can collect free rapid antigen test kits for yourself and anyone else listed on your Medicare card. You can collect them from cohealth Collingwood.
If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 you are able to get a PCR test, even if your symptoms are mild.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
149 Easey St, Collingwood
(located at the back of cohealth, 365 Hoddle St)
Opening hours: Monday – Friday, 9.15am to 4.30pm
(closed between 12.15pm and 12.45pm)
Walk-ins welcome. You do not need an appointment.
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms.
Visit the clinic during opening hours to pick up a rapid antigen test or to get a PCR test if you are eligible. You do not need an appointment.
Bring your Medicare card and the details of your usual General Practitioner (GP) and/or GP practice, if you have one. If you don’t have a Medicare card, bring one form of identification such as your driver’s licence or student ID.
