West Belconnen COVID-19 Testing Clinic closes

The West Belconnen COVID-19 Testing Clinic will no longer operate as a testing clinic from tomorrow, Friday 22 January. This will allow the facility to return to delivering Child and Family services.

The number of negative tests recorded in the ACT is now 152,918 with 427 tests in the past 24 hours.

Free testing is still available at Garran Oval, Weston Creek, Kambah and EPIC drive through sites. Free testing can also be accessed by appointment at [email protected] and Lakeview Medical Practice in Tuggeranong on weekdays, and Winnunga Nimmityjah Respiratory Clinic, which provides a culturally appropriate assessment and testing centre for First Nations people and existing clients of Winnunga.

Due to the extreme heat that is expected this weekend, the Kambah drive-through COVID-19 testing site will be closed from Saturday 23 January to Monday 25 January and will reopen on Tuesday 26 January.
