Do I still need a COVID test?

The Primary Health Network recently had a chat with one of our GPs and our Nurse Unit Manager to find out if we still need to be testing for COVID-19.

With case numbers falling, they explain why it’s just as important as ever that you get tested for COVID-19 when you experience any respiratory symptoms.

In order to fully eradicate COVID-19 we need to ensure that every single case is identified. And the only way to find COVID-19 cases in our community is through testing.

There’s no symptom too mild and no child too young; we would encourage anyone with any respiratory concern to come and get a test. Continuing to get tested is the best way that you can help protect our local community on the Central Coast.

“[Testing] keeps our community safe, it’s the only way we can find those cases that are lurking out there in the community.”
