We’re here to support the community through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We have processes in place to safely assess, test and manage people who may have the virus, and to keep our staff, patients and visitors safe.

This page is updated as the COVID-19 situation evolves to ensure you have access to the latest information and advice.

Do you need a COVID-19 test?

Use our COVID-19 Online Screening Tool to assess your symptoms and to find out if you need to be tested.

If you need a test, you must make an appointment first.

Call our COVID-19 hotline on 9496 6606 (8am-8pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 5pm weekends and public holidays) to book an appointment or for advice.

Only come straight to hospital if it is a medical emergency and call 000 for an ambulance.

Please come alone if you can. If you need assistance, bring one person only.

If you've been tested and you're waiting for your results, please be patient. We'll contact you as soon as we have them.

If you're an ONJ Centre patient, please visit the ONJ Centre website.

For general information and advice call the Victorian Government Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398 or visit the DHHS coronavirus website.
