Virus testing sites


COVID-19 is still lurking around and anyone with cold or flu like symptoms, however mild, should get tested.

Medical authorities say every test helps the community stay safe and stay open.

Symptoms can include fever, coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, headache, muscle or joint pains, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, loss of sense of smell, altered sense of taste, loss of appetite and fatigue.

Testing clinics on the Mornington Peninsula are at Eleanora House at the front of the Rosebud Hospital, in the clinic car park at Atticus Health Medical Clinic, Hastings, by appointment only, and at Rosebud Respiratory Clinic at the Rosebud Skin Cancer Centre. Tests are by appointment only.

Frankston Hospital, on the corner of Yuille Street and Hastings Road, is also offering tests.

For further advice call the 24-hour Coronavirus hotline 1800 675 398, your GP or use the state government’s online self-assessment tool.
