Module 3: Testing


Last revised: 05 Jun 2023


COVID-19, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are all notifiable diseases in Australia. You must understand the reporting requirements of your State/Territory for a positive test:

Australian Capital Territory
New South Wales
Northern Territory
South Australia
Western Australia

Testing and reporting of positive cases vary for each notifiable disease; for example COVID-19 is usually reported following a positive polymerase chain reaction test (PCR) or rapid antigen test (RAT), while influenza and RSV surveillance data currently only include notifications of laboratory-confirmed cases (via PCR).

This section provides information on the types of tests that can be utilised for COVID-19, or suspected flu or RSV case.
