Covid-19 testing

Community Testing Centre

  • Community testing centres can be drive through or walk-in.

    • It’s essential that people order and collect a RAT kit if they are a close contact, have cold and flu symptoms or if they are visiting a vulnerable person. 
    • If you have been asked by a health professional or are uncomfortable using a RAT test, you should present to a testing centre to get a COVID-19 PCR swab.
    • It’s really important that anyone awaiting a test result or who is a close contact should be self-isolating and not leaving the house for any reason.
    • If you’re coming to collect RATs kits, you can also collect a RATs kit for each of your household members.

    RATS are ordered via https://requestrats.covid19.health.nz/ OR free call 0800222478

    The COVID-19 Healthline kaimahi support people with information and advice about COVID-19. This includes clinical advice about symptoms and non-clinical advice about testing locations – Call free on 0800 358 5453

    Information for Community Testing site opening and closing is updated frequently, however there may be occasions a testing site may close with minimal notice for reasons that include but are not limited to:
