Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced that people who do not register their positive rapid antigen test results will be fined $1000. Positive antigen test results will need to be reported via the Service NSW app and website.
From 12 January, you must report a positive rapid antigen test result.
You can register a positive test result for yourself, another adult or a child.
You should register a positive test result as soon as possible by visiting our app or website.
DO NOT VISIT A SERVICE CENTRE.

The news comes as NSW records its deadliest day since the start of the pandemic with 21 deaths reported in the last 24 hours with 34,759 new cases.
Mr Perrottet added that any positive results since January 1 should be reported.
“We made a decision as a government that the registration of that test is mandatory and you will need to register your positive rapid antigen test from January 1,” he said.
