There are community based assessment centres (CBACs) across the Wellington region where you can get assessed and tested for COVID-19.

Assessment and testing is free of charge. You may not need to be tested, but the assessment centre team can advise you on what to do next whether you are tested or not.

If you are feeling unwell and think you may have COVID-19, please call Healthline 0800 358 5453 or your GP.
