We’re in day one of a five-day lockdown for the greater Perth metro area, along with the Peel and South West regions, and attention has understandably turned to getting as much testing done as quickly as possible to get a handle on where we’re at in terms of community transmission.
The WA Government has just announced an updated list of testing locations around Perth, including private pathology collection centres which can be accessed free of charge, but you do need your Medicare card and may need to book ahead.
As always, for the most recent and up-to-date medical advice for WA, head to the Department Of Health WEBSITE.
