I'm negotiating a Covid testing hurdle at present. I've got to look at a job on a mine site and have to have a negative test between 48 and 72 hours prior. Sounds easy but I'm in Tasmania and flying to Adelaide on a Tuesday. That means getting tested over the weekend and the only way I can do that is rock up to a drive through and use hay fever symptoms as justification. OK, I have now been tested due to having symptoms and will have to isolate until I get results but what if the results don't come through before my Tuesday flight? I can't fly because I'm in isolation. Catch 22!
Only viable option seems to be to get tested at Adelaide airport, then spend 48 hours in Adelaide. That of course pushes everything into the weekend and makes things difficult for those I'm meeting on site.
Certainly is, if I were coming into Tasmania. Problem is I'm leaving Tasmania and going to another State. I can see this becoming an issue for any interstate travel where a negative test is required. The State you are leaving is not going to help because they have no interest in anything outside their borders.The you a
Isn't asymptomatic testing for certain critical essential cross border workers still in force?
Hardly goss. If you read the fine print of their road map it is there until 12/1/22 unless reviewed earlier.Goss only (so don’t flame): Speaking to some people in Tassie public services, apparently they are planning on dumping the 72 hour testing requirement in Jan / Feb

No problem with the GP and I don't care whether it's free. I'll just charge the customer. Problem is the timing puts it on the weekend. As far as I know, drive through is the only way to get tested on the weekend, but I'm told it can take three days for results.I don’t think you will have to wait long
Alternatively see a GP who can do a CovidSwab but it won’t be free (Swab or GP)
