We have expanded test accessibility by increasing the number of home test kits that are couriered to and from the home. These are available to book by eligible individuals using the self-referral portal. We have also increased mobile testing, with 96 units currently operational (8 May 2020). Mobile test units are being deployed to areas that have a pressing need for testing by individuals who cannot access regional test sites. Local Resilience Forums coordinate with local partners to inform the Department of where a unit is required.
