COVID-19 Rapid Testing for Businesses in Melbourne
9th September, 2021
Melbourne businesses are increasing their use of rapid antigen testing as a way of screening their workforce, contractors and visitors for COVID-19, especially when they do not have symptoms.
For Melbourne businesses that require their workforce to be on-site, such as those in the mining, construction, supply chain and warehousing industries, COVID-19 rapid testing at your premises can help protect your workforce and business operation as a whole.

What is Rapid Antigen Testing not suitable for?
Cornerstone Health are specialists at setting up Rapid Antigen Testing clinics for businesses, administered by trained healthcare professionals. This type of testing is not available for self-testing or at-home testing for individuals.
Additionally, Rapid Antigen Testing is not a substitute for common COVID-safe practises including the correct wearing of face masks, correct social distancing and frequent hand hygiene.
Positive test results or symptomatic persons will require immediate confirmatory testing with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.
