Who can get free RATs?
Four kits are available each visit for people with a disability and carers collecting the tests on behalf of people with a disability. These include:
- NDIS participants
- Disability support pensioners
- People with a disability who receive a Transport Accident Commission benefit.
Individuals can collect up to two kits for themselves, plus up to two kits for each household member per visit.
What if I have symptoms or I am a contact of a COVID-19 case?
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, do not go to a council location to collect your free RATs.
Instead, please collect free RATs at testing sites which you can find through the coronavirus website.
Where can I get more information on the use of RATs?
For more information about getting tested and reporting a positive RAT result, visit the Department of Health website.
Alternatively you can call the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 675 398.
