Recently I was able hand deliver free RAT tests to the Kwinana community, pictured here with the Hon. Member for South Metro Stephen Pratt MLC.
As a part of the McGowan Government's free RAT program, my electorate office has received a number of RAT tests available for Kwinana households. 10 RATs are available from my electorate office per household while stocks last. The State Government's WA free RAT program has continued to expand, providing Kwinana residents with easy access to free rapid antigen tests. This is in addition to the 15 free RATs already provided to WA households, the free RATs available for close contacts, and over half a million RATs handed out at train stations, major events, and across regional WA.
We want to make it as easy as possible for WA households to access free RATs in order to fulfill any testing requirements they may have. West Australian's have done an amazing job throughout the COVID-19 pandemic complying with the health measures put in place to keep our communities safe. Easily accessible free RATs will make sure WA households aren't prevented from accessing the tests they need by cost of living pressures.
A full list of collection points and opening hours is available at WA.gov.au
People who return a positive RAT result must register their result online with the Department of Health. Those who do not have access to the online registration system must still report their positive test result by contacting 13 COVID (13 26843).
For Kwinana households, please call my electorate office on 9439 6444 to enquire about availability of free RATs.
