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)

OR 

  • Acute respiratory infection (e.g. cough, shortness of breath, sore throat)

OR 

  • 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.

 

Community Assessment Clinics

Additional COVID-19 screening services are available through the following Community Assessment Clinic. 

This assessment clinic aims to ease pressure on current emergency department COVID-19 presentations and will allow for prompt assessment of those with symptoms.
