I am COVID positive, what do I do

If you get COVID-19, you should:

  • report your RAT result by calling NIHRACS on 22091
  • if you took a PCR test at our testing clinic and received a positive result, you do not need to report it. The testing clinic will report it to our COVID Nurse directly.
  • wear a mask for 7 days after your test
  • avoid visiting hospitals, aged care or disability care for 7 days after your test
  • ask household members to closely monitor for symptoms.

Norfolk Island Health strongly recommends that you stay and home and isolate, until:

  • your symptoms have substantially reduced and
  • if you have gone for at least 24 hours without a fever, without using fever-reducing painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.

You should:

  • wear a face mask covering your mouth whenever you are in an indoor setting outside the home
  • avoid contact with people who are a higher risk of severe disease
  • wash your hands regularly
  • practice good respiratory hygiene (such as covering your cough)
