Health district ramps up testing for coronavirus

South Western Sydney Local Health District has increased its Covid-19 testing in response to the cluster of cases in the region from the Crossroads Hotel outbreak.

Drive-through testing is continuing at the Crossroads Hotel, Casula, for anyone who visited the premises from 3 to 10 July.

The clinic will be open until this Thursday (16 July) from 8.30am to 6pm.

People who attended the hotel in that period must immediately self-isolate until 14 days after they were last there, attend a clinic for testing even if they have no symptoms, watch for respiratory symptoms and get retested should any occur. Even if they received a negative test result they must stay in isolation for 14 days.

A drive-through clinic has also opened at the Ash Road Sporting Complex, Prestons, to provide additional testing in the Liverpool area. The clinic is open from 8am to 6pm until Sunday (19 July).

In Picton, a drive-through clinic has opened at Victoria Park, Menangle Road, in response to a patron of the Picton Hotel testing positive to Covid-19, who had also visited Crossroads Hotel.

The drive-through clinic is open from 8.30am to 6pm until this Saturday (18 July).

Anyone who visited the Picton Hotel on 4, 9 and 10 July, should be tested immediately, even if they do not have symptoms.

Walk-in testing is available at the Moss Vale Showground from 10am to 4pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week (17, 18 and 19 July).

The opening hours of the Covid-19 testing clinics at Campbelltown, Bowral & District, Liverpool, Fairfield and Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospitals have also been extended from 8am to 6pm.

In some good news on the pandemic front in outer South Western Sydney, the two Labor MPs who had dinner at the Crossroads Hotel last week, Anne Stanley and Anoulack Chanthivong, have both tested negative for Covid-19. Both say they will continue to self isolate for the recommended 14 days.
