People in the Southern district with cold and flu symptoms who were 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 (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. Testing is free.
