Many of Southern NSW LHD's testing clinics have been very busy following the announcement of Covid-19 cases in the ACT.

People should seek testing only if:

New testing sites and longer clinic opening hours are in place across South East NSW.
Check our website for details. It will be updated with new pop up clinics today: https://www.snswlhd.health.nsw.gov.au/our-services/infectious-disease/covid-19
Be prepared to wait
During this period of high demand, anyone seeking a test should be prepared to wait. Take water and snacks and use the portaloos or outside toilets at the testing site. Please do not enter a health facility while you wait for your test.
We recommend the community pre-register for a COVID-19 test by calling 1800 318 248. Our support line is open daily from 7am - 5pm. Pre-registration can also be done using our online enquiry form. The phone line is very busy today, we thank everyone for their patience.
