$1000 fines for failing to register a positive RAT


NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has today announced $1000 fines for NSW residents who fail to report positive rapid antigen test results from January 19.

The announcement comes as the function to report a positive result to Service NSW went live at 9am this morning.

“NSW residents can register their result with just a few clicks on the Service NSW website or by using the Service NSW app,” Perrottet said.

“Registering your RAT result enables NSW Health to provide you with advice on self-isolation and managing Covid-19 symptoms at home, to connect high risk people to clinical care services and to help inform the ongoing public health response,” he continued.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard says the reporting of a positive RAT will be required under a public health order.

Customer service and digital government minister Victor Dominello spoke about the security of the reporting feature, “Service NSW will send the information directly to NSW Health, it isn’t shared with any third parties, and is then deleted from Service NSW records within days.

“There are more than seven million Service NSW account holders but we’re also committed to making this process inclusive for those without that access. Those who need assistance can contact Service NSW on 13 77 88.”
