You can still drive-through coronavirus testing centres

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

During lockdown, you can still drive through coronavirus testing centres around the region.

You should go if you have flu-like systems or have recently travelled, Waikato DHB says.

Firstly, phone Healthline on 0800 358 5453, for guidance on whether assessment and testing is needed. If you can't get through, phone your general practice/doctor.

Test results take "several days", the DHB said.

Current community-based assessment centres (CBAC) are at:
- Claudelands Event Centre
- Tokoroa Hospital
- Ngāruawāhia Panthers Rugby League Club
- Taumarunui Hospital campus
- Huntly War Memorial Hall
- Te Kūiti Hospital
- Silver Fern Event Centre, Te Aroha

Designated GPs offering COVID-19 assessments:
- Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki Thames
- Tui Medical Centre
