With an increase in community transmission across the south west Sydney region, there are now more testing facilities available to help protect St George residents and their families.
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, is continuing to highlight the importance of getting tested even if you only have the most mild of symptoms.
“I am calling on all residents of the St George community to play their part in protecting our region from further community transmission. Please come forward for testing even if your symptoms are only mild,” Mr Coure said.
“Maintaining high rates of testing is critical in ensuring that all community transmission is documented and that our contract tracers have all the information they need to assist in providing comprehensive health advice.”
A new drive-through COVID-19 testing facility has opened at Poulton Park in South Hurstville, to accommodate for the growing demand and need for increased testing.
“This new drive-through clinic at Poulton Park will provide up to 300 tests per day and it will operate Monday to Friday with no medical referral needed.”
“By increasing testing locations and making it easier for people to get tested, the NSW Government is ensuring that individuals can get tested with minimal impact on their work, home or education arrangements.”
