COVID-19 Clinics and Testing Centres

Rapid testing (60 minutes) is only available in emergency situations. This type of test is not currently available within COVID-19 and Respiratory testing clinics.

Visit the Testing for COVID-19 page for information on who is eligible to get tested and how.

If you meet the criteria for testing for COVID-19, you do not need a referral to visit most dedicated COVID-19 clinics.

You do require a ‘specimen collection request form’ from your GP to access drive-through and home testing services.

By triaging, testing, and referring suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19, these clinics will take pressure off our Emergency Departments and help to minimise the spread of infection.

Metropolitan COVID-19 Clinics

You do not need a referral to attend the below COVID-19 clinics located at public metropolitan hospitals:

Drive-through Testing

Patients need to get a ‘specimen collection request form’ from their GP to access the drive-through testing service.

Drive-through collection centres have been established so that tests can be taken with the patient still in the vehicle, minimising the risk of spreading the infection.

Drive-through testing will support GPs who may not be able to perform the test in their own clinic.

Home Testing

Patients need to get a ‘specimen collection request form’ from their GP to access the home testing service.

SA Pathology offers a dedicated metropolitan Adelaide Domiciliary Service staffed by nurses for the collection of potential COVID-19 specimens within a persons’ home.

Home testing supports GPs who may not be able to perform the test in their own clinic.
