In Queensland, testing may be done for people who have fever (or history of fever) OR acute respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, shortness of breath).
If you are unwell and you meet the above criteria, you should contact a doctor immediately. Your doctor will decide if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
In addition we are operating a Federal Government Respiratory Clinic. The clinic is open Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm and situated at Suite 6, 2081 Moggill Rd, Kenmore. Bookings can be made by phoning 3363 1699 or through our website you are able to book via HotDoc into "free GP respiratory appointment."
Before your appointment, please call ahead and tell them about your symptoms so they can prepare for your visit.
While waiting for your test results you will be advised to self isolate. Currently tests are taking approximately 24-48 hours to be reported to us.
Self isolation guide and FAQ can be found here.
Your doctor will call you with your test results. If your results are negative then you no longer need to self isolate, however depending on your illness and symptoms you may be advised to continue remaining at home until you are completely well.
If your results are positive, you will be advised to continue isolation. You may also be contacted by the Public Health Unit as all positive results are managed by them.
Support is available if you are concerned about COVID-19 or are distressed because you are in self quarantine or sick.
