Post date: Jun 2, 2020 9:39:20 PM

Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be conducted in Rylstone again tomorrow (June 4), with Western NSW Local Health District to be part of a new drive-through testing service between 10am & 3pm.

Director of Public Health, Priscilla Stanley. says that while there are currently no known cases of COVID-19 in Rylstone, or in the District.

Rylstone is the fourth location in the District to receive the service, with more than 71 people tested last week in Molong.

She says that the plan is for the mobile service to visit a number of smaller communities, with the testing service set up at the water filling station on Ilford road next to the ambulance station.

The service will be free of charge, and she says that as it’s a drive through service so you won’t have to leave your car, with the tests are then sent away for analysis which normally takes about 48 hours.

If your test is negative, you can request to get those results by text message even faster.

Finally she adds that if you have any questions or concerns you can ring the Western Public Health Helpline on 1300 066 055 or healthdirect on 1800 022 222.
