For the latest information and advice about COVID-19 in Victoria, restrictions, the vaccination program and local testing sites.

When to get tested

If you have any cold or flu-like symptoms, such as a cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath or runny nose, you should get tested for COVID-19. 

Where to get tested locally

If you are a contact of someone who has COVID-19, and you don’t have COVID-19 symptoms, you are recommended to use rapid antigen tests.


Looking after yourself or someone with COVID-19

For most people with COVID-19, recovering at home will the best option for care. 

The Government has prepared this page explaining mild, worsening and severe symptoms and detailing how to effectively isolate at home away from others.


Public exposure sites

The Department of Health is no longer maintaining a list of public locations where there was a risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Victoria's isolation rules have changed. To see what you have to do if you have been told you are a contact, you can review the Government's checklists and information resources.


Where to get vaccinated 

Barwon Health's Community Vaccination Hub at Norlane is taking bookings for booster doses and for children aged 5-11 years.

Alternatively, view other vaccination centres, seek out your closest respiratory clinic or ask your doctor for advice.

You can also get your COVID-19 vaccine through participating doctor's clinics, pharmacies, or community health services.
