Queensland Health has updated its guidelines for COVID-19 testing and will now test people who have any of the following respiratory symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath and fatigue.
If you meet the testing criteria, please visit your nearest Fever Clinic or contact your doctor immediately. Before your appointment, please call ahead and advise of your symptoms and any recent travel so that they can prepare for your visit.
Testing for COVID-19 involves collecting nasal or throat swabs, and sputum (mucus coughed up). These samples are then transferred to the nearest laboratory that is set up to test for COVID-19. After testing, you will be sent home to self-quarantine to wait for the results.
Where to get tested
If you have a fever and/or respiratory symptoms and meet the above criteria you can present to your nearest Fever Clinic or to Mater's COVID-19 testing clinic located at Suite 2, 600 Stanley Street, South Brisbane between 8 am and 4 pm to be assessed for testing. Here is a flyer with a map and car parking details.
Outside of South Brisbane, Mater Private Hospital Springfield has reopened its COVID-19 Testing Clinic to support the local community in testing for COVID-19. The testing clinic is open between 8 am to 4 pm until further notice. The clinic is open to the public (of all ages) and ‘walk in only’ with GP referrals encouraged, but not required.
