Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing for school staff

The Victorian Government has introduced a voluntary Victorian School Staff Coronavirus (COVID-19) Testing Scheme for all Victorian school staff from 13 May to 26 May 2020.

This is in addition to widespread testing for coronavirus (COVID-19) available to the Victorian community.

Staff can volunteer for testing if they do or do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).

How to access testing

Testing will be available through up to 80 sites across the state for two weeks. Information about where you can be tested is available on the Department of Health and Human Services Getting tested web page.

School staff with symptoms can also access a test from their local general practitioner, who may perform a test or refer staff to a testing clinic.
