If you have COVID-19 symptoms and cannot leave home due to disability, or the need to care for others, then you can get tested at home. To access the Call-to-Test service, call the Victorian COVID-19 hotline on 1800 675 398 and select option 9. Find more information about the Call to Test service in Easy English.
