A clinic screening people with risk factors for COVID-19 has been set up at Gosford and Wyong hospitals as part of our ongoing response to diagnose and slow any spread of COVID-19 in the community.
Who should be tested?
People who have cold and/or flu-like symptoms and:
- have returned from overseas travel in the last 14 days OR
- are a contact of a confirmed case.
Please note, people who have returned from China, Iran, Italy or South Korea, or have had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 but are well, should self-isolate at home for 14 days and only seek testing and treatment if they develop symptoms.
How do I organise testing?
STEP ONE: Seek medical advice.
Anyone with symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) who has travelled overseas in the last 14 days or has had contact with a known case of COVID-19, should call their GP or Healthdirect on 1800 022 222 for advice in the first instance.
STEP TWO: Phone ahead.
If testing is advised, people must phone ahead of attending the COVID-19 clinic to book an appointment.
Anyone who attends the clinic without a booking may be asked to wait, or may be instructed to go home and return for an appointment. This is to minimise waiting times and the risk of infection to others.
The Gosford COVID-19 clinic can be contacted on 4320 5055, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and 10am to 4pm on weekends.
The Wyong COVID-19 clinic can be contacted on 4394 9200, 9am to 5pm everyday.
STEP THREE: Get tested.
The COVID-19 clinic is at 75 Holden Street Gosford, adjacent to the Gosford Hospital P2 car park.
The COVID-19 clinic is located at Building C (opposite the Health Services Building) at Wyong Hospital.
