Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) - positive COVID-19 result registration form

If you test positive for COVID-19 on a rapid antigen test (RAT) it is very likely that you have COVID-19.

Report your positive COVID-19 test result to us below.

Reporting your positive COVID-19 rapid antigen test (RAT)

Use this self-reporting form to report your positive COVID-19 RAT result.

You can also use the form to report a positive COVID-19 RAT result for anyone under your care.

You only need to report a positive COVID-19 RAT result for a test taken in the last 14 days.

If you are unable to complete the form or you need help, including the assistance of a free interpreter, call 134 COVID (134 268).

Note: if you took a PCR test at a testing clinic and received an SMS with a positive result, you do not need to report it. The testing clinic will report it to Queensland Health directly.

Report your positive COVID-19 RAT

I have COVID-19 – now what?

Step 1: Follow the First steps if you have COVID-19.
Most people who are fully vaccinated will be able to care for themselves at home, like you would for other viruses. If you are over 70 years of age, have other health problems or are pregnant, you may need extra medical care or treatment.

Step 2: After you have registered your positive COVID-19 RAT result, if you're unsure whether you need medical care for your symptoms, or if you feel you might require medical assessment or treatment, you can:

  • Call the National Coronavirus Helpline 24/7 on 1800 020 080 for assistance with connecting you to a health professional or hospital care, if required. Press 8 if you need an interpreter;
  • Contact your general practitioner, local GP practice or usual specialist;
  • Use the Health Direct COVID-19 Symptom and Antiviral Eligibility Checker.

Depending on your symptoms and other health conditions, you'll be advised the right type of COVID care for you.

Antiviral medicines for COVID-19

Antiviral medicines for COVID-19 are now available for people at high risk of developing severe illness. These medicines can reduce the need for you to go to hospital. Treatment needs to start within five days of developing symptoms or testing positive to COVID‑19. Check to see if you are eligible and find out who to talk to about your options.
