The FREE COVID Testing Clinic will be open daily from 9am to 5pm, from Friday 31 July 2020
The Drive Thru Clinic is located prior to the main drop off area at South East Regional Hospital, 4 Virginia Dr, Bega. Follow the signs.
There is no longer a requirement to schedule appointments at most of the District’s COVID-19 testing sites. Callers to the SNSWLHD 1800 999 880 COVID line will be provided with information on testing eligibility and clinic times and locations.
SNSWLHD is urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhoea or muscle aches – to self-isolate and seek COVID-19 testing, so cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible.
These testing sites include Goulburn Base Hospital, Queanbeyan District Hospital, Eurobodalla Health Service (Moruya), South East Regional Hospital (SERH), Cooma District Hospital, Jindabyne Clinic and Yass District Hospital as well as the ‘pop-up’ clinics at Hanging Rock and Crookwell. See our website at: www.snswlhd.health.nsw.gov.au.
A number of our smaller COVID testing sites will still be by appointment only (Pambula Hospital, Bombala MPS and Eden) – call 1800 999 880 (option 2).
It remains essential that everyone maintains social distancing and good hygiene to minimise the risk of spread between people. People can unwittingly pass COVID-19 to others if they are incubating the virus or have very mild symptoms.
There are steps we can take to protect ourselves and loved ones:
If you have even mild symptoms, a cold or cough, get tested and stay home until you’re cleared
- Keep your 1.5m distance from others at all times even if you are well
- If you have been in Victoria, don’t mix with other people until two weeks has passed
- Practise good hand hygiene at all times
- Consider wearing a mask if you are in a situation where you cannot socially distance.
