We will not be taking walk in patients for rapid antigen testing. 

Supervised rapid antigen testing (RATs) is for unvaccinated people with no COVID-19 symptoms, who require evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result to travel within New Zealand, or for entry into a court of law.

  • For travel, the test must be done within the 72 hours prior to travel (preferably within 24 hours). See the Unite against COVID-19 website for more travel advice.
  • For court attendance, the test must be done within 24 hours.

For more information about rapid antigen testing, view the Ministry of Health website.
