DSR Rolling Out Rapid Antigen Tests

Disability Sport & Recreation (DSR) has been provided Rapid Antigen Testing kits, courtesy of the Victorian Government. The tests will be distributed to DSR members with a disability and to organisations in the disability sport & recreation sector.

With the wheelchair rugby season about to start, we want to make sure our members have the opportunity to watch and participate. We all want to see our favourite athletes tear it up on the court. However, with the disability community being most at risk to COVID-19, we all have to do our part to ensure a safe return to sport and recreation.

We will be distributing to DSR members with a disability and partnering with other organisations to reach more people with disability.

What you need to know:

  • You need to fill out an expression of interest form to receive a test

How to get your test

All DSR members are eligible to receive up to 7 tests per household. If you're currently not a member, no stress! Membership is free, you can sign up online or when you collect your test.

When to use a Rapid Antigen Test

  • When you start to feel unwell with symptoms that could be caused by COVID-19

  • When someone you live with (household contact) or recently spent time with (social/work/education contact) tells you they have tested positive

  • When you want to check that you don’t have COVID before going to a large social event or visiting vulnerable people (such as an elderly relative in a nursing home)
