Getting Test for COVID-19
COVID-19 testing requirements in NSW have changed. More information can be found on the getting tested for COVID-19 fact sheet.
If you tested positive for COVID-19 from a rapid antigen test (RAT), you are strongly advised to register your test result with Service NSW so that you can receive the appropriate support and advice from NSW Health including antiviral treatment.
Where a resident or consumer is unable to independently complete the information on the Service NSW portal, the resident’s facility manager or the consumer’s advisor or coordinator could register the result on behalf of the resident or consumer.
We appreciate your understanding that we may have to amend our measures timely in response to the urgent directive from the NSW Health. We will contact all affected consumers, residents, relatives or staff directly as required.

Frequently Asked Questions:
As you must have heard from the news, the Government’s pandemic management measures are relaxing with the clearly trending downward of COVID-19 transmissions in NSW. This is certainly a pleasing news to all of us.
The government has just announced some changes to the close contact isolation rules. However, please be aware that these changes DO NOT apply to aged care settings or aged care workers (residential care or home care or senior wellness centre).
Older people are at greater risk of more serious illness if they get COVID-19. If you, or someone you care for, need help, there is support available. Visit My Aged Care COVID-19 page to access a range of important resources to guide you through this difficult time.
