When & where in New South Wales can I report my rapid antigen positive test result


In NSW as at 8pm Monday, 10 January 2022 the COVID-19 test positivity rate was est. 24.06%


However, as total test numbers are no longer accurate due to the fact that during the Christmas-New Year period the NSW Government began to direct people to use a rapid antigen home-test kit to self-diagnose rather than attended a government or private testing centre and a significant number of persons appear to be following that direction even though NSW Health to date has no way of recoding the results of home-testing.


On 10 January the NSW government said that later in the week it will be allowing rapid antigen test (RAT) results to be voluntarily registered through the Service NSW app and these results will count towards the state's daily COVID-19 case tallies. Presumably at the same time giving access to whatever limited health services which remain available to those people required to isolate and self-manage their infection at home.
