COVID-19 Clinics and Testing Centres

Dedicated COVID-19 clinics are open across metropolitan and regional South Australia.

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

When to present?

Please only present for testing if:

  • You have travelled overseas in the past 14 days AND have symptoms.
  • You have travelled interstate in the past 14 days AND have symptoms.
  • You have been in contact with a confirmed case AND have symptoms.
  • You are a healthcare worker with direct patient contact AND have a fever (≥38) OR an acute respiratory infection (e.g. shortness of breath, cough, sore throat).​
  • You are an aged and residential care worker AND have a fever (≥38) OR an acute respiratory infection

Metropolitan Clinics

Regional Clinics

Planning is also underway for COVID-19 clinics in other regional Local Health Networks.

Drive-through Testing

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.

Patients need a referral from their GP to access this service.

Home Testing

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

Patients need a referral from their GP to access this service.
