Gippsland Region Public Health Unit says:

If you are experiencing any symptoms, including fever, flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell, please get tested and stay home until you receive a negative result.

The current wait time for results can be up to 48 hours so be prepared to isolate at home during this time. The only reason to leave your home is to receive urgent medical attention.

We acknowledge the community’s cooperation during lockdown which has helped control this current situation and is making the process easier to manage.
