As a student:
If you do not have any COVID-19 related symptoms, it is recommended that you use a daily rapid antigen test for 5 days.  You can come to TAFE during this time if the result is negative. If you don’t have symptoms and cannot access a rapid antigen test, then monitor for symptoms and get tested if symptoms emerge.

If you are symptomatic, you must use a rapid antigen test, or get a PCR test if you can’t access a rapid antigen test.  COVID-19 symptoms include fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath and loss or change in sense of smell or taste.
