Testing numbers have dropped recently, which is a concern. NSW Health is appealing to the community to come forward for testing right away if you have even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could be COVID-19.
There are over 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic visit COVID-19 testing clini​​cs or contact your GP.
