Am I at risk?
Testing for COVID-19 (coronavirus) is being conducted in a number of locations. For testing locations see https://www.goldcoast.health.qld.gov.au/coronavirus-covid-19/visiting-fever-clinic-getting-tested
For students: The University will work with you to put in place a plan to support your studies. Email CV Support. Students who knowingly attend campus during a period when they are required to self-isolate will be in breach of the University's regulations.
For staff: You should contact the Human Resources Team to discuss appropriate work from home or leave arrangements during periods of self-isolation.
For information on COVID-19 you can call the Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you are feeling unwell and not sure if you need to seek medical help, the Department of Health COVID-19 Symptom Checker can help you decide what to do next.
At Gold Coast University Hospital, there are screening stations at the entrances near the emergency department, ground floor foyer, and the level 1 outpatient clinic entrance. The actual fever clinic is located on level five and you will be directed to this location AFTER being seen at the screening station.
There is paid parking out the front of the Robina Health Precinct building or you can access it from the pedestrian tunnel off Bayberry Lane near Robina Hospital. This is the same tunnel that links the train station to the high school. The screening point at the Robina Health Precinct building is in the foyer, on the ground floor. The actual fever clinic is located on level two and you will be directed to this location AFTER being seen at the screening station.
These screening points are staffed by registered nurses who will help people with their coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns by either:
- Directing them to a fever clinic for testing.
- Directing them to the emergency department for treatment.
- Advising them to see a GP because it is likely their symptoms are not coronavirus (COVID-19) and can be treated by GP.
As restrictions are eased, testing criteria is subject to change
