South West Heathcare Provides Asymptomatic Covid Testing For School Staff

A Victorian School Staff Coronavirus Testing Scheme has commenced, and South West Healthcare are providing local school staff (teaching and non-teaching) with a drive thru asymptomatic screening clinic.

The Drive Thru which began yesterday, will operate today (May 20) and tomorrow from 1-4pm at the Warrnambool Base Hospital car park, for school staff (showing no symptoms of Coronavirus) who work on-site at a Victorian government, catholic or independent school.

The voluntary program is for Victorian teachers, principals and all other staff, including casual relief teachers.

Non-teaching staff who work at a school site, such as cleaners and regular contractors, are also eligible.

Only kindergarten staff whose kindergarten is located at a school site are eligible for testing.

Childcare workers are not included unless they work on a school site.

Those who meet the criteria and would like to be screened, have been encouraged to visit the drive thru clinic earlier each afternoon rather than later, as there can be quite a queue near the end of each session.

Completed necessary paperwork from the school's principal is also required.
