The Testing Criteria has Changed
as of 28.02.2022
When to get a PCR test
You can get a PCR test if you have symptoms and you:
are age 55 or older and have not had a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose
have a weak immune system (immunocompromised)
live in the same household as a person who has a weak immune system or provide support or care for them
are a healthcare worker
If you have a positive antigen test, you can book a PCR test if you need a COVID-19 Recovery Cert.
When to get antigen tests
If you are a healthcare worker and you are a household close contact, you can get antigen tests if you:
do not have symptoms of COVID-19
have not had COVID-19 in the past 3 months
If you are a healthcare worker and you have symptoms of COVID-19, get a PCR test.
Antigen tests are not recommended for children under the age of 4.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, even mild ones, you should:
self-isolate (stay in your room) until 48 hours after your symptoms are mostly or fully gone
wear a face mask if you have to be around other people
Do these even if you completed your first round of COVID-19 vaccination, had a booster, or had COVID-19 in the past.
