Naracoorte testing site update

From tomorrow, the Naracoorte COVID-19 testing site will move locations. The site will still be located at Naracoorte Health Service, but at a new onsite location to improve access.

The new testing site will be clearly signposted with vehicles to enter from Jenkins Terrace using the closest driveway to Butler Terrace roundabout. Heavy vehicles can continue to park on Jenkins Terrace and walk to the testing site. The site will now operate from 8.00am to 4.00pm, 7 days a week.

If you have, or if you know someone with symptoms of COVID-19, encourage them to seek testing. Once you get a test, return home immediately and wait for your results. If you receive a negative test result, you should still stay at home and not attend work, school or childcare until you are feeling well again.

Do not go to public places if you are unwell – this includes work, education, childcare, shopping centres, sporting events, social or religious gatherings.

Everyone must continue to follow measures that will help stop the spread. Practice good hygiene, keep 1.5 metres distance from others and stay at home if you are unwell.

People experiencing any of the following symptoms should be tested for COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills (in the absence of an alternative illness that explains these symptoms)
  • An acute respiratory infection e.g. symptoms of cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath
  • Loss of smell or alteration in the sense of taste
