The Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has lengthened the testing times at its COVID-19 Assessment Centres throughout the district, adding an extra day for those with symptoms who may need to be tested and treated quickly.
The district has added an extra day (Saturday) of testing at Goulburn and Queanbeyan. The move is in response to demand at the centres, with the testing proving popular with local communities.
Any one heading to an assessment centre must call the Central Intake Service on 1800 999 880 (option 1) before attending.
The purpose of these clinics is for people who have respiratory symptoms or fever and who are at risk of COVID-19, for example because they were in contact with a COVID-19 case, or have returned from overseas in the 14 days before onset of symptoms.
You will only be tested if you fit the COVID-19 testing criteria.
This testing can take up to two days to complete and report back.
