Update 22 September

The RACGP received notification on the morning of Wednesday 22 September that the DHHS now requires all candidates to undertake surveillance testing within the 72 hours prior to the commencement of sitting an exam.

DHHS allowed the PEPEA to proceed but all Box Hill and Melbourne candidates must undertake a COVID test as a priority after the exam.

If candidates have already undertaken a COVID test since Sunday 19 September, they do not need to be tested again.

If candidates have not had a COVID test on or after Sunday 19 September, they must get tested as soon as possible after leaving the exam venue.
