Expanded testing

COVID-19 testing is no longer solely focussed on people who have travelled, those who have spent time in known hot spots like the Barossa, and those who are close contacts of cases.

While an initial two-week testing blitz ended on 30 April, any South Australian who has a fever or respiratory symptoms consistent with coronavirus, no matter how mild, is welcome to attend one of our COVID-19 clinics, or their GP, for assessment and testing.

Testing has also been expanded to include anyone with unexplained loss of taste or smell.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Monitor for symptoms such as:

  • fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath.

Other early symptoms to watch for are

  • chills and body aches or muscle pain
  • a sore throat
  • headaches
  • runny nose
  • diarrhoea
  • unexplained loss of taste or smell.

If you experience any of these symptoms contact a testing centre.
