If a result is positive you will hear back within 48 hours. Negative tests can take a bit longer to return.

If you are waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test it is important you stay home until you get a negative result, and have been symptom free for at least 24 hours. 

If you cannot work because you are waiting for a test result you should still get paid. Your employer can apply for the COVID-19 Short-Term Absence Payment to cover your wages.

Download the COVID-19 testing factsheet for more information.

Symptoms can include one or more of the following:

  • a new or worsening cough
  • sneezing and runny nose
  • a fever
  • temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste
  • sore throat
  • shortness of breath.

Less common symptoms may include:

  • diarrhoea
  • headache
  • muscle pain or body aches
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • malaise — a general feeling of discomfort, illness or unease
  • chest pain
  • abdominal pain
  • joint pain
  • confusion or irritability

These less common symptoms almost always occur with one or more of the common symptoms.

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are like other illnesses that are much more common, such as colds and flu.

Shortness of breath is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.

If you have any of these symptoms, contact your doctor, Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or your iwi health provider.

Community Testing Centres only do COVID-19 testing. Hours are valid for the period Friday 26th November to Friday 3rd December 2021.
