Over the coming months, you and your family may need to be tested for COVID-19 multiple times.
Under directive from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), anyone showing even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms must be tested. This isn’t a one-off; each time you or your family members show symptoms, you must be tested for COVID-19.
