COVID clinics

As of Thursday 2nd April, the testing criteria for COVID-19 will be expanded significantly at all COVID clinics.

General Public Testing

Any person presenting to a COVID clinic with BOTH a documented fever (≥38°C) AND an acute respiratory infection (e.g. shortness of breath, cough, sore throat) will be tested.

High-Risk Staff Testing

Anyone working within a high-risk setting that presents to a COVID clinic with EITHER a fever (≥38°C) OR an acute respiratory infection will be tested. This includes healthcare workers (including aged care and disability workers) and WA Police Officers.

High-Risk Settings

Testing will also be arranged for anyone from the following high risk settings where two or more people are experiencing EITHER a fever (≥38°C) OR an acute respiratory infection:

  • Aged and residential care
  • Rural and remote Aboriginal communities
  • Detention centres
  • Correctional facilities
  • Boarding schools
  • Military barracks or equivalent
  • Geographically localised areas with increased risk of community transmission
  • Cruise ship passengers or returned travellers (international and domestic).

Patients who are tested should remain isolated at home, until they receive their test results and further medical advice.

Who should avoid?

Do not attend unless you have symptoms AND meet the above criteria, including documented evidence.

People presenting at COVID clinics may be infectious.

People who don’t have symptoms and evidence will be turned away and asked to self-monitor for symptoms.
