COVID-19 Testing Clinics – Central Coast Local Health District

Our testing clinics carry out free-of-charge PCR (nose and throat swab) tests. You are recommended to visit a testing clinic for a PCR if you:

  • have COVID-19 symptoms but have tested negative on a rapid antigen test AND are at higher risk of severe disease, including those who are pregnant, immunosuppressed, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Pacific Islander, or unvaccinated
  • have symptoms and can’t get a rapid antigen test
  • have been asked to have a PCR test from a health care provider.

Everyone else can get tested via a rapid antigen test. If you return a positive rapid antigen test, you do not need to have it confirmed with a PCR test unless you are:

  • pregnant (more than 20 weeks gestation)
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
  • unvaccinated (16 years and over)
  • immunosuppressed
  • a worker, resident, patient, or client in a high-risk setting where there is not a current confirmed outbreak. High risk settings include: healthcare, aged care, disability care, and correctional facilities
  • asked to by a registered medical practitioner
