Free rapid antigen tests are now available for anyone who needs to test for COVID-19.

You no longer need to meet eligibility criteria to receive free tests, and you don’t have to live within Hobsons Bay.
You can receive 10 tests (two boxes of five tests) for yourself, plus up to 10 tests for each member of your household per visit. Priority and high-risk community members who fall into one of the following categories can receive 20 tests (four boxes) per visit and tests may be collected by someone else, including a carer, as required.


  • NDIS participants.
  • Disability support pensioners.
  • People with a disability who receive a TAC benefit.
  • People who are 70 years or older, immunocompromised or have a concession card.
