Queensland Health has updated its advice on who should be tested for COVID-19.
“Testing may be done for people who have fever (or history of fever) or acute respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, shortness of breath),” the department says.
“If you are unwell and you meet the above criteria, you should contact a doctor immediately. Your doctor will decide if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
“Before your appointment, please call ahead and tell them about your symptoms so they can prepare for your visit.”
