NSW Health has announced that it is opening a FREE drive-through and walk-in COVID-19 testing clinic at Brenan Park Community Hall, Smithfield.

The clinic will run Monday to Friday from 7 September, 8am to 6.30pm.

NSW Health is urging anyone displaying any symptoms - fever, cough, sore/scratchy throat or shortness of breath – to get tested, no matter how minor the symptoms.

Brenan Park Community Hall is located on Bourke Street, Smithfield. No referrals or appointments are required. The testing area will be fenced off while the COVID-19 testing clinic is in place for everyone’s peace of mind.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone welcomed the continued testing in the City.

“As your Mayor, I am pleased at how well this City has answered the call to get tested. Over the last few months, local testing has identified a number of positive cases, helping authorities slow the spread of this potentially deadly disease in our community,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Recent figures have been very encouraging for our City, but we can’t afford to become complacent. Providing the opportunity for our residents to be tested will help us stay ahead of any new outbreaks and give everyone reassurance that the virus is not spreading in our community.

“Please get tested if you have symptoms, no matter how minor. Wash your hands, social distance and wear a mask if you are in a crowded locations like public transport and supermarkets. Doing all this protects your family, friends and the community and helps prevent another outbreak.”

Drive-through testing is also continuing weekdays, 9am-5pm at Fairfield Showground. Drivers attending either testing site are instructed to follow directions of staff, and present their licence and Medicare card. They will be tested without having to leave their car. Anyone in the vehicle can be tested, including children. No referral is required for the FREE test.
