Thank you to our community
Yesterday our pop-up testing at Marty Busch Reserve closed, after a very busy fortnight testing and tracing our community to beat down this latest outbreak. Each time we enact a COVID response, we rely on our community to assist with a range of needs – generously and immediately. Each time we are overwhelmed by the level of support we receive. It takes a village to raise a testing site!
