COVID-19 Testing
and Isolation

Do I need to have a COVID-19 test prior to surgery?

Patients undergoing elective surgery are no longer required to test for COVID-19 prior to their admission. This also applies to carers accompanying a patient.

What happens if I am a close contact?

If a patient or their carer is identified as a close contact, they must have a RAT test for 7 days following their last contact with the person who has COVID-19.
On arrival for their surgery, patients/carers must show the Patient Services team a photo of their negative RAT test, along with their Medicare card and the date the RAT was completed. Patients who present for surgery without a negative test result will be required to have a RAT test before their admission.

What happens if I am a social contact?

If a patient or their carer is identified as a social contact, they should monitor for symptoms and only undertake a RAT test if they start to experience symptoms.
