Just a few months ago, the Personal Injury Commission of New South Wales (the Commission) found an employer liable for the death of an employee who contracted COVID-19 during their employment and ordered them to pay the widow an $834,000 lump sum death benefit and weekly compensation for the period of the deceased’s hospitalisation.
"Employers have a duty under the model Work Health and Safety laws to eliminate or minimise the risks of COVID-19 at work so far as is reasonably practicable. Statistics show however, that more than one third of employees that have contracted COVID-19 are still infectious when they return to work."

There is significant evidence that regular COVID-19 testing programs provide the only practicable solution for disrupting the chains of transmission and eliminating the ingress of infection on site. In addition to reliably monitoring SARS-CoV-2 transmission rates and severity within high-risk environments, regular testing policies and systems are key for the prompt isolation of infected persons to protect colleagues and the broader community.

What is a rapid antigen test, how does it work and where can I find a rapid antigen test near me?
A Rapid Antigen Test is a test that looks for COVID antigens from a small swab sample.
It can be done anywhere at anytime and does not need to go to the pathology lab for results.
Results are quick, and the procedure only requires a small swab sample.
Two kinds of Coronavirus tests look for viral material. These two tests include a Nucleic-acid-based test (or PCR test) and an Antigen test.
The third kind of test is an Antibody test, which examines the immune response to infection.
The PCR test requires a pathology lab to process the test result, whereas a Rapid Antigen Test or Antibody Test can be done outside of a lab, at the point of care, on site at your workplace.
