Some of our drive-through COVID-19 testing sites are experiencing longer than usual delays today.
Consider other COVID-19 testing sites such as dedicated clinics at our hospitals or book in at a Respiratory Clinic or with your GP.
Thank you for your patience and for doing the right thing by getting tested if you have symptoms or if you have been asked by SA Health to get tested.
For a list of sites visit www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/covidtesting
If you need to get tested:
▪️Please be patient with staff who are working hard to organise logistics and collect samples.
▪️Be prepared for your visit by bringing water and snacks. If you are attending a walk-in site, bring sun protection (sunscreen, hat, umbrella) and a chair.
▪️Keep 1.5 metres between yourself and others in line and wear a mask if possible.
▪️Motorists are reminded to not queue across intersections, ensure that you leave enough distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you, drive slowly through the testing sites and ensure you have enough fuel if waiting in line at a drive-through clinic.
After your test:
▪️Go straight home. Avoid contact with other people.
▪️Stay in self-isolation until you receive a negative test result (in certain cases you may be required to remain in self-isolation or self-quarantine if directed to do so by SA Health or SA Police, even if you receive a negative test result).
📱If you are well but worried, contact the SA COVID-19 Mental Health Support Line on 1800 632 753. ... See MoreSee Less
