Rapid antigen tests

Under new pandemic orders that come into effect at 11.59pm tonight (6.1.2022), people who test positive on a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) will be considered probable cases and be subject to the same requirements as confirmed cases from a PCR test – they must isolate immediately for seven days and notify their contacts. It will be mandatory to report the result of a positive RAT to the Department of Health through an online form or by phone – ensuring people can access the care and information they need, including monitoring for worsening symptoms and financial support for isolation. A full Media Release from the Premier of Victoria can be downloaded here.
