Some important information from NSW Health about the importance of getting tested for COVID-19.
It’s important anyone with symptoms gets tested for COVID-19.
Encourage friends and family over the age of 50 to get tested, even if their symptoms are mild, such as loss of smell, loss of taste, runny nose, muscle pain, joint pain, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting and loss of appetite.
Suggest a testing clinic near them: www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Pages/clinics.aspx
If you’re older or a carer and have questions you can call the Older Australians COVID-19 Support Line on 1800 171 866.
