COVID-19 testing

In the past week, 6,188 people received a PCR test in South Australia, a five per cent decrease on the previous week.

Most people can do a Rapid Antigen Test if they are at low risk of severe COVID-19 illness but have symptoms. If you test positive to COVID-19 using a rapid antigen test, you do not need a PCR to confirm.

SA Health encourages everyone to make sure they are up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations and for the most vulnerable to have a plan with their GP to access PCR testing and antiviral treatments if they develop symptoms.
