You can call Healthline on 0800 358 5453. You can also call your GP. Please be aware that COVID-19 testing is not available at our hospitals. Please see below for a list of our community-based testing centres.
We are still doing high numbers of FREE COVID-19 tests in Auckland which means our COVID-19 testing centres (CBACs) and general practices are busy.
It also means that although we have the capacity to test everyone who meets the national criteria for COVID-19 testing, there are longer than usual wait times at our CBACs and it may take longer for people to get their results.
If you need to be tested, plan ahead and prepare for longer than usual wait times.
