The New South Wales government is extending its COVID-19 support and providing free rapid antigen tests to vulnerable communities and Commonwealth concession card holders.

The current federal free RATs program for concession card holders is set to expire at the end of the month but will be extended in NSW until October 31.

“That will mean access to 10 rapid antigen tests for all Commonwealth concession card holders,” Premier Dominic Perrottet said.

“We want to make sure that our vulnerable communities have access to these tests.”Read MoreThe Australian
