How long for Covid results in NSW?

Recommended Posts

I completed my test 25 hours ago and have registered for the sms.

i was the only person at the clinic, they said they hadn’t had anyone for hours (major regional hospital). It was a public holiday, though.

im getting really sick and short of breath from coughing, I don’t believe it’s Covid, but the gp won’t see me without a negative result, and if I go to ED, they will send me to this same clinic I went to before treatment, people are in emergency for 24hrs plus because of this.

when did you get the text?

Mine took 27 hours 3 weeks ago (inner west Sydney, drive-through site).

I went to the GP with my non-Covid viral illness the morning after, and had most of two weeks off work.

Ive heard of people in Sydney going to hospital based sites with 9 and even 3 hours (all negative). Apparently the ServiceNSW app is a little quicker than the Health SMS

We’ve had the test at a designated Respirtory clinic 4 times in regional nsw. 
First time we missed the courier cut off and got it back at 9ish two days later. 
Other three times we made the courier and it was 9pm that night, and 5 am the following morning twice. 
 

good luck, hope you get it soon.

Thank you! It’s so miserable delaying antibiotics.

Last time was a day and a half roughly. 4 family members tested at 3 different places regional and suburban. All got results within 30-40 hours roughly.
