Echuca Regional Health has partnered with the Echuca Rotary Club to relocate its COVID-19 screening clinic to Rotary Park from Monday, August 9.
The new site at 1 Rose St, Echuca, will offer drive-in and walk-in testing, moving the clinic out of the hospital’s emergency department where more than 15,000 swabs have been taken since March 2020.
The outbreak in NSW and increase in cases during Victoria’s fifth lockdown saw a significant increase in the number of people getting tested at ERH, including those with symptoms or people requiring a test after returning from hot spots or visiting an exposure site.
“We are very grateful to the Echuca Rotary Club and in particular committee chair Neil Sproal for partnering with ERH to support the COVID screening program for our community,” ERH chief executive Nick Bush said.
“The newly created site will support the consistency in screening presentations and streamline any influx due to outbreaks as COVID cases continue to rise in NSW.
“Given our cross-border connection, our community has been vigilant throughout the pandemic in getting tested for even the mildest of symptoms, and we know this new drive-in process will enable an easier process for our community and our COVID screening staff.”
Echuca Rotary Club committee chair Neil Sproal said members were pleased to support ERH in a “crucially important program for the local community”.
“We are delighted to partner with ERH to offer our resources and support the development of the new COVID-19 drive-in site at Rotary Park,” he said.
“We welcome the community to use the new location to keep our community safe and on top of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The clinic will run Monday to Sunday with gates to open to the public from 9:30am until 4:30pm. Days and times are subject to change with notice, ERH will notify the community through its website and social media.
