Pop-up Covid testing at Bankstown Central

RESIDENTS will have more Covid-19 testing available close to home with the opening of a drive through clinic at Bankstown Central.

The clinic will be open from Tuesdays to Saturdays, June 30 to July 11 (9.30am-4pm, no bookings required), at the shopping centre, via Lady Cutler Avenue car park.
Drivers pull up at the clinic with their licence and Medicare card in hand and they will then be ushered in for testing without leaving their car. Anyone in the vehicle can request to be tested.
An Arabic-speaking staff member will be at the clinic.
South Western Sydney Local Health District Director of Population Health Stephen Conaty encouraged anyone with even the mildest of symptoms to come forward for testing.
“We encourage anyone in our community with symptoms to visit our clinic or see their GP for testing,” Dr Conaty said.
“This is especially so if you have travelled to Melbourne in the last 14 days.”
Symptoms include: Fever, cough, sore or scratchy throat, shortness of breath and loss of sense of smell or taste.
“On behalf of our staff, I would like to thank everyone for staying home, supporting physical distancing and practising good hygiene to stop the spread of COVID-19.
“Pop-up clinics will continue to travel across the South Western Sydney Local Health District over the coming weeks.”
