COVID-19 Screening

The Respiratory Assessment Clinic located at 184 Merri Street, has now moved to Deakin University. You do not require a booking to attend the testing centre but you do need to register for a URN before arriving. Please see the steps below for registering for a URN.

• Complete the registration form. You’ll save us (and you) a lot of time by having it completed before driving in:
• You will then receive a text with your unique registration number (valid for 90 days and can be used for multiple tests).

If you need a medical certificate to cover your isolation period you will need to advise when having your test. We will do our best to accommodate.

Once the swab is completed, a further text will be sent from the Department of Health with information on what to do after being tested. Notification of a negative COVID result will also be sent by text. The current wait times for test results is 3-6 days, due to enormous demand across the state.

If you are symptomatic you are required to isolate until you receive your result.
