Testing for COVID-19
The Ballarat Health Services pop-up clinic for staff from local schools to be tested for COVID-19 has now closed.
School Staff Testing
The pop-up clinic for asymptomatic testing of local school staff has now closed.
Results for school staff who visited the WCPA clinic will be communicated directly with the person who was tested (generally via SMS text message). Those who have no symptoms when they are tested do not need to self-isolate unless they develop symptoms.
Anyone who is displaying even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms must make an appointment for testing at the UFS Lucas Clinic: 03 4311 1571.
Testing at the BHS Dental Clinic in Sebastopol, and Morshead Park has ceased.
We are not conducting any testing at those premises.
Community Testing for those who are symptomatic (showing symptoms of COVID-19)
Anyone who is showing even the mildest of symptoms must contact the UFS Clinic in Lucas for an appointment. Telephone (03) 4311 1571
Community Testing for those who are asymptomatic (not showing any symptoms of COVID-19)
Asymptomatic testing is previously been conducted following directions from the Department of Health and Human Services.
