Eligible Victorians can now collect free rapid antigen tests (RATs) from libraries and customer service desks at participating local councils.
People aged 70 years and over, those who are immunocompromised and specific concession card holders are eligible to collect a pack of five tests.
People living with a disability, including NDIS participants, disability support pensioners and people with a disability who receive a Transport Accident Commission benefit, are eligible for a pack of 20 tests. Carers can collect rapid antigen tests on behalf of an eligible person.
People should not go to a council site if they have COVID symptoms. State-run COVID-19 testing sites continue to offer free RATs to people who have symptoms.
