Community Testing Centre

People in the Southern district with cold and flu symptoms who are seeking a COVID-19 test should call 0800 VIRUS19 (0800 847 8719) or their local GP for advice, and should stay at home.  If you are offered a test for COVID-19, please take it.  It will help us ensure we don't have community transmission, and help keep your friends, family and whānau safe.  Regardless of where you are tested, COVID-19 testing is free of charge. 

Call your GP or 0800 VIRUS19 or (0800 847 8719) to get tested.  If you don't have a GP, or your GP does not offer COVID-19 tests, you can attend a ''designated practice'' for your test.
