Important Information About Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For Gastrolab tests booked to be performed at a clinic, please DO NOT come into the centre if:

  1. You are experiencing any of these symptoms: fever, chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of sense of smell or taste.
  2. You have been identified as a close personal contact with a confirmed Coronavirus case.
  3. You have been in close contact with a suspected Coronavirus case.
  4. You have travelled overseas in the past two weeks.

Due to social distancing do not bring a guest where possible. We may ask you to wait in your car in between sampling.

We recommend you wear a face mask/covering. In metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire you must wear a face covering when leaving home unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so.

We recommend downloading the Australian Government’s COVIDSafe App, which is designed to provide early notification of possible exposure.

Gastrolab Mail-order kits are available for patients who wish to self-collect at home or work.
