All Greater Shepparton residents, whether they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or not, are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19.
Every test conducted in Greater Shepparton counts towards finding, slowing and eventually removing the virus.
Previously, all residents tested for COVID-19 had to isolate at home immediately until they received a negative result.
Those displaying symptoms, those who have been to a high risk location in Shepparton as named by DHHS or those who have been in direct or indirect contact with a positive case, still must isolate after being tested.
However, now if you have not entered a COVID-19 high risk location, aren’t displaying symptoms or have not had direct or indirect contact with a positive COVID-19 case, you will not have to isolate until you receive your results.
