Hutt Valley and Capital & Coast DHBs continue to test for COVID-19 across our region, with 1756 swabs carried out on Monday 28 June.
The Government is encouraging people in the Wellington region who were at a location of interest or who are symptomatic to seek a test. People should call Healthline (0800 358 5453) or their GP for advice on testing and referral to a booking centre.
Locations and hours for our CTCs are available on the two DHBs’ websites: www.ccdhb.org.nz/our-services/covid-19-community-based-assessment-centres-cbacs and www.huttvalleydhb.org.nz/your-health-services/covid-19-community-based-assessment-centres-cbacs.
Testing priority continues to be given to those individuals who have a booking, or who have been to a location of interest or are symptomatic.
Alert level 2 door screening and visitor provisions also remain in place at the region’s hospitals – Hutt Hospital, Kenepuru Community Hospital, and Wellington Regional Hospital.
There will be a slight loosening of visitor restrictions, and a winding down of door screening, at hospital entrances from 6am on Wednesday 30 June.
