A pop-up Covid-19 testing site will be set up at Nhill trailer exchange
A pop-up Covid testing site has been set up for truck drivers heading over the South Australian Border.
Announced yesterday (September 1st, 2021) West Wimmera Health Service is partnering with Ballarat Health Services and the Department of Health to set up a pop-up Covid-19 testing site at the Nhill Trailer Exchange.
The site was set up after the response to a recent spike in demand from truck driver who are required to be regularly tested to cross the border into South Australia.
The snap rule change by SA authorities means truck drivers has to be tested within 72 hours, which resulted in a bottleneck in Horsham, as the closest testing site.
