As COVID testing facilities across the country are overwhelmed, authorities are urging people who test positive from a rapid antigen test and have mild symptoms to contact their GP - and not visit a PCR testing facility unless they are really sick.

Meanwhile supply issues continue to affect the availability of rapid antigen tests across Australia.
A new guideline has been created on what to do next for those who get a positive rapid antigen test result.
The revised guidelines announced by the National Cabinet confirmed that those who get a positive result from a rapid antigen test are no longer required to have a PCR test.
Instead, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said people who tested positive on a rapid antigen test and had mild symptoms would now be able to get support at home from their GP via the telehealth system.
