Ten more free RATs
Massive news for West Aussies: under the next phase of our Australian-first WA Free RAT Program, every household will receive 10 more free RATs – on top of the five already announced.
In addition, half a million free RATs will also be handed out at some train stations, major events, universities, TAFEs, and shopping centres over the coming weeks.
And another 74,000 RATs will be distributed directly to households in remote and town-based communities through bespoke arrangements to get more RATs into these communities.
Due to international events, there is no doubt petrol prices are impacting cost of living pressures in WA, and we want to make sure this doesn’t prevent WA households from having readily available and affordable COVID-19 tests.
By providing free RATs to all Western Australians, we are able to ensure everyone is best placed to stay safe with Omicron in the community and limit unnecessary spread of the virus.
