  1. The COVID 19 screening test will be performed through a rapid antigen test (COVID Screening Test) approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

  2. The COVID Screening Test is only for workers who do not have any COVID-19 symptoms.

  3. If you get a positive COVID Screening Test result, you will not be permitted to access ANSTO’s work site and must immediately get a PCR test from a COVID-19 testing clinic to confirm the results of my COVID Screening Test and isolate until you obtain a negative PCR Test.

  4. Positive COVID Screening Test results will be disclosed to NSW Health as required by law.

  5. If you get a negative Screening Test result, you will be permitted to attend ANSTO’s work site and must continue to follow the latest health advice, workplace instructions and the restrictions in your area, this includes attending further COVID Screening Tests, as required.

  6. If you do not wish to continue with the COVID-19 Screening Test, you may decline to test. If you decline to test, you may not be allowed onsite until you can satisfy the applicable COVID evidence requirements, and your manager/employer will be informed.
