Do I need to have a rapid test if I have already tested positive for Covid-19 in the past?

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 before, but not in the past 10 days, you should still get a rapid (LFD) Covid-19 test. 

These tests are for asymptomatic individuals only. If you have symptoms or know that you currently have Covid-19, you must seek a test through local testing sites.  

Remember that you will need to book TWO Tests. Where possible these should be 3 days apart, if this is not possible this can be extended to 5 days.
