COVID testing locations
RATs community collection site at Miro Street
Rapid antigen testing (RATs) is being used extensively as part of the COVID-19 testing strategy. People who have COVID-19 symptoms, or are asymptomatic and a household contact, or a critical worker can order and then collect RATs from the Miro Street testing station.
There are two channels available to order RATs:
- Online at https://requestrats.covid19.health.nz/.
- Free call to 0800 222 478 option 3
After you’ve registered, you can pick up your RAT from the Miro Street testing location (see below for opening hours and location details).
*The RAT collection site at the Great Lake Centre is now closed.
