There are community based assessment centres (CBACs) across the Wellington region where you can get assessed and tested for COVID-19. We're also testing people who visit their GP or hospital displaying symptoms of COVID-19.

If you are offered a test for COVID-19, please take it. It will help us ensure we don’t have community transmission, and help keep your friends, family and whānau safe.

Assessment and testing is free of charge. You may not need to be tested, but the assessment centre team can advise you on what to do next whether you are tested or not.

Our highest priority for testing is people displaying COVID-19 symptoms who have:

  • travelled overseas
  • been in contact with people who have recently returned from overseas.

This reflects the current testing strategy set by the Ministry of Heatlh.

Asymptomatic people requesting COVID-19 testing due to personal preference or at the request of employers unrelated to surveillance activities listed above will not be offered testing. Advice on the Ministry of Health website states: “If you don’t have symptoms, you should only get a test if directed to by a health official – for example, if you work at the border, ports or in a managed isolation or quarantine facility, or are a close contact of a confirmed case.”

While waiting for the results of your test, you'll be asked to self isolate.

View current testing numbers across our region.

 

If you are feeling unwell and think you may have COVID-19, please call Healthline 0800 358 5453 or your GP.
