Testing positive using a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test
The NSW Government is making changes to how it identifies positive COVID-19 cases.

Instead, people who test positive using a COVID-19 rapid antigen test must register with Service NSW as soon as possible. This will help you:
quickly understand your relative level of risk
