Mayor Trent Sullivan

There are no eligibility requirements when collecting free tests.

Everyone is welcome to come pick up free RATs from our participating council facilities, no matter their age or health, disability or carer status.

Community members can take up to two kits per person plus up to two for each household member, while those with a disability or their carer can collect up to four packets of tests.

RATs are a convenient and fast way to detect COVID-19 early.

Following the closure of state PCR testing sites, the Victorian Government is supporting local councils to distribute free tests until June this year.

Council requests that that community members who are experiencing symptoms don’t attend these facilities for a test.
