The Victorian Government has announced its intention to continue screenings with the goal of 150,000 additional tests completed by the end of May.
Screening clinics are open for symptomatic staff and the public in Clayton, Dandenong, Berwick, Cranbourne and Pakenham. No appointment is necessary for testing.

At this stage, testing is only being provided to those who have symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, chills/sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose or loss of sense of smell. You are encouraged to get tested if you have any of the symptoms, however mild. If you are tested, you must return home and remain in self-isolation until you get your test result.
