The DHHS has established a pop-up COVID-19 testing site at Melbourne Showgrounds.
The convenient COVID-19 testing site, accessible for pedestrians and vehicles, is designed to ensure our community can access safe and reliable testing facilities.
For further information visit the website for the Department of Health and Human Services here.
On some days the testing site will experience high demand and wait times are expected.
Should a high demand be received, on any given day the site may close early to safely service as many people as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding while we work with the DHHS to navigate this service.
