You must return home immediately after the test. You must wear a face covering on your way home. Do not make any stops on your way.
Victorian and interstate labs are working around the clock to process all the tests. It usually takes 1-3 days to get your results after being tested, but sometimes it takes a little longer to confirm the results.
Your doctor or the clinic where you were tested will contact you by phone or SMS to tell you your results, regardless of whether it is positive or negative.
If you test positive you will be contacted by a public health worker from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for advice on the next steps.
