Rapid antigen test (RAT) - positive result registration form

Rapid antigen test (RAT) - positive result registration form

If you took a PCR test at a testing clinic and received a positive result, you do not need to report the positive PCR result to ACT Health.

The laboratory will report it to ACT Health directly.

If a positive RAT result is unexpected (for example you don’t have symptoms, or you haven’t had a known COVID-19 exposure) you may choose to have a PCR test.

Why should I report my positive RAT?

Registering your positive result is still required under the Public Health Direction, so that we can help you can access health information and other support.

If you test positive for COVID-19 on a PCR test in the ACT, or you submit a positive RAT result, you may be contacted by ACT Health by

  • phone
  • text, or
  • email.

You will also be sent a text message with a link to a short survey to complete.

Completing the survey provides you the opportunity to link with COVID Care@Home for support.

Information provided in the survey remains confidential and is not given to anyone without your consent.

While it is no longer mandatory to isolate if you test positive to COVID-19, you should still stay at home and take steps to protect those around you.
