More information about testing is available on the Queensland Health website.

Testing Location

For a full list of testing locations, including private and drive through clinics please visit the Queensland Health COVID-19 Testing Page. Phone: 07 4744 4444.

What happens when I get tested?

For more information about testing for coronavirus (COVID-19) in Queensland, visit the Queensland Health Website.

Testing usually involves collecting a swab or swabs from the nose and throat. Staff collecting the swabs will be dressed in protective clothing during the process.

It may take 48-72 hours to get the results. Until people receive a result, they should self-isolate. For more information about self-isolation requirements, visit the Queensland Government website. If your condition worsens while awaiting test results, you should go to the emergency department of your nearest hospital. A member of North West Hospital and Health Service infection control team will telephone patients with test results.

Negative test results will be texted to your mobile phone.  All people who receive a positive test result will receive further instructions, based on their individual situation.

Please ensure we have your up-to-date phone number, preferably a mobile number. Calls to mobile phones from North West Hospital and Health Service will display as ‘No Caller ID’ and we are unable to leave your test results as a voice message.
