COVID-19 Clinics and Testing Centres
Dedicated COVID-19 clinics are open across metropolitan and regional South Australia:
Flinders Medical Centre
Mount Barker Hospital
These clinics are for people who have COVID-19 symptoms (especially fever or cough) AND have recently returned from overseas OR have had contact with a known COVID-19 case.
By triaging, testing, and referring suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19, these clinics will take pressure off our Emergency Departments in the event of an outbreak and help to minimise the spread of infection.
Planning is also underway for COVID-19 clinics in other regional Local Health Networks.
A drive-through COVID-19 collection centre is located at the reactivated Repat site. Tests can be taken with the patient still in the vehicle, minimising the risk of spreading the infection.
Drive-through COVID-19 testing clinics in Whyalla and Port Augusta are expected to be operational in the coming days.
Drive-through testing will support GPs who may not be able to perform the test in their own clinic.
Patients need a referral from their GP to access this service.
SA Pathology offers a dedicated metropolitan Adelaide Domiciliary Service staffed by nurses for the collection of potential COVID-19 specimens within a persons’ home. Patients need a referral from their GP to access this service.
