WA to send negative COVID-19 results by SMS
Western Australians who return negative test results for COVID-19 will now be informed via SMS notification to reduce administrative time spent on return phone calls.
Health Minister Roger Cook said more than 700 COVID-19 tests are being conducted every day in the state but that number is expected to rise.
"It can take clinicians up to 20 minutes per phone call to inform patients of a negative test result,” Mr Cook said.
