Register your positive RAT to help manage COVID pandemic

Rapid Antigen Test

The NSW Government is requiring people who have received a positive outcome from a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) to register the result with Service NSW.

The move is designed to enable a better understanding of how the COVID-19 virus is spreading and to guide the authorities’ approach to managing the pandemic.

RAT tests are a quick and convenient way to test for COVID-19 at home. People aged 16 years and over living or staying in NSW are asked to register a positive RAT test from themselves, another adult or child as soon as possible.

Visit and click on the ‘Register a positive result’ button and follow the instructions. You will need to enter:

  • the date of the positive rapid antigen test result
  • name, date of birth and postcode of the person tested
  • your contact details.

The PHN is encouraging everyone to share this information with your networks both professional and social and encourage those who get a positive RAT result to report their results.

The NSW Government has indicated fines of $1,000 may apply for failing to register a positive RAT.
