Fever and Community Assessment Clinics
Metro North Hospital and Health Service is conducting COVID-19 screening at Fever Clinics in a range of locations and the Pine Rivers Community Assessment Clinic.
These clinics are for people who have:
- Fever (of 37.5 degrees or above) or history of fever (e.g. night sweats, chills)
- Acute respiratory infection (e.g. cough, shortness of breath, sore throat)
- Anyone presenting for, or requesting, testing
Other reported symptoms of COVID-19 include: fatigue, loss of smell, loss of taste, runny nose, muscle pain, joint pain, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting and loss of appetite.
The person being tested should isolate pending test results.
If you don’t meet these criteria, you will not be tested for COVID-19 (coronavirus) because it is more likely you have another virus such as a cold or influenza.
