NSW Health: Covid testing is free
NSW Health reminded residents on Wednesday that Covid-19 testing is free, after a private Auburn clinic charged a child's family $120 for a test.
It said reimbursements were being arranged for people who had paid for tests, reiterating that a Medicare card is not needed to be tested.
Authorities want to sustain daily testing levels above 30,000 to make sure there are no undetected chains of transmission.
Some 32,667 people were tested in the most recent 24-hour period, up from 26,391 the previous day.
Pop-up clinics have been set up in Berala and Lidcombe, and the government has implored multicultural community leaders to pass the message on to their communities.
