A drive-through COVID-19 testing clinic will open at the Goondiwindi Hospital today in response to the announcement of a local exposure site.
This clinic will operate from 8.30am to 5pm each day until further notice.
Truck drivers are reminded that the Caltex Goondiwindi is their designated COVID-19 testing site.
“We are asking truck drivers to please utilise the designated facility at the Caltex Goondiwindi,” Darling Downs Health, Health Emergency Operations Centre, Executive Lead Annette Scott said.
“We are expecting that the community will respond to the recent news about a local exposure site and present to be tested. This is excellent and what we want people to do.
“But in order to cope with this demand, it is really important that hospital-based clinic is for the general community.”
The Caltex Goondiwindi is operational 8.30am to 4pm, seven days a week.
