Rapid Antigen Testing (RATs)
The Unite against COVID-19 website has more information on how to use a RAT test, when you should get a test, what you need to do if you test positive or are a probable case, and how to report your RAT results.
The following resources show if you need a test, how to take a RAT and how to report your RAT result.

Information and resources on RATs are also available in different languages
If you have already tested positive, you do not need to have another test before you end your isolation period.
A positive RAT result does not need to be confirmed by a PCR test, unless you are advised to do so.
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should stay at home until they are well. We also encourage people to continue to wear masks, physically distance where possible and maintain good hand hygiene.
