Door Knock testing

Door knockers will again be out in Fawkner today providing information on COVID-19 and encouraging residents to get tested. Door knockers can also arrange a home testing kit to be delivered and also arrange for nurses to visit the home and test people with symptoms in the coming days.

What to do after you have your test

If you have symptoms, then you must self-isolate until you get your test result. If you do not have symptoms, then you are still encouraged to get tested but you do not need to self-isolate.
