Coronavirus Information

Full Panel Respiratory Testing

From 1 January 2024, a GP referral is required to access PCR testing for COVID-19.

If you test positive using a rapid antigen test, your result does not need to be confirmed with a PCR test. You must report your positive result to SA Health.

Full panel respiratory testing (including COVID-19) is available at most SA Pathology collection centres across South Australia – find a location near you.

For your convenience, respiratory bookings are available at the following locations:

If you have respiratory symptoms, please wear a mask while accessing our service.
