On behalf of the WA Country Health Service, the Shire of Dardanup, Administration Centre, Eaton is a distribution point for new allocations of free Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) to community members who are considered close contacts of a person with Covid-19.

One box per person containing 5 RATs is available for collection between 9.00am and 3.00pm Monday to Friday, while stocks last.

To be eligible for the free tests, you must:

  • Be a close contact with no symptoms
  • Wear a mask when visiting us and have recorded a negative daily RAT (as per current Health Department protocols for close contacts)
  • Verbally confirm with Shire staff that you are a close contact.

Also, the WA Health Department is offering free pulse oximeters to vulnerable members of the community and these are available for collection from our Eaton Community Library at 2 Sanford Way, Eaton or Dardanup Office.

A pulse oximeter is a small peg-like device that clips onto your finger to read your heart rate and blood oxygen level.

Having a pulse oximeter allows you to participate in the free COVID at-home care program if you test positive, allowing symptoms to be tracked and provides support during your recovery.

If you are eligible you can pick one up from our library. Please feel free to contact our friendly library staff on 9724 0470 to arrange a ‘Phone Ahead & Collect’ option.

If you can answer ‘YES’ to the following questions you are eligible to receive a free pulse oximeter:

  • Are you non-Aboriginal and over 65?
  • Are you Aboriginal and over 50?
  • Are you pregnant?

Please only come to the library to collect an oximeter if you are well and have not tested positive for COVID-19.
