The Department of Health and Human (DHHS) will provide in-home testing for vulnerable Victorians in metropolitan Melbourne to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
The Call-to-Test service will enable vulnerable Melbournians to get tested for COVID-19 at home by a qualified health clinician. The service is for people who cannot leave home due to injury, mobility or other eligible reasons.
The service is available to those with COVID-19 symptoms who meet the following criteria:
People without symptoms may be eligible if they have been identified by DHHS as being a close contact, have received direction from DHHS to be tested, and meet any of the criteria detailed above.
You will need a GP referral for a COVID-19 test to access the service, unless you have been directed by DHHS to get a test, as well as demonstrate you are cannot access existing testing sites through family or community supports.
Call the COVID-19 hotline 1800 675 398 and select Option 9 to find out if you are eligible for the service. The operator will discuss options available to you and support you through the process.
Connect Health & Community encourages anyone who believes they may be eligible to call the hotline number to arrange a test.
