Following the Government’s announcement this afternoon that alert level 2 will remain in place for a further 48 hours, Hutt Valley and Capital & Coast DHBs will keep additional testing capacity operating across the region. Alert level 2 door screening and visitor provisions will also remain in place at our three hospitals, at this stage until 11.59pm on Tuesday 29 June.

The DHBs will continue to operate the COVID-19 pop-up testing sites at Wellington Regional Hospital, Hataitai Park, and Lower Hutt’s Riverbank car park on Monday 28 June and Tuesday 29 June. The Te Papa site is open until 6pm Sunday 27 June, and will then close as Te Papa prepares to reopen for business.

The Government are encouraging those in the Wellington region who were at a location of interest last weekend or those who are symptomatic to get tested.

“Testing will continue to be offered at pop-up sites, Community Testing Centres (CTCs), and at GPs across the region. There is some capacity at pop-up sites and CTCs should people need to get tested this afternoon, and there will be capacity at all pop-up sites and CTCs on Monday and Tuesday,” says Rachel Haggerty, Director of Strategy, Planning and Performance for Hutt Valley and Capital & Coast District Health Boards.

676 COVID-10 tests were administered on Saturday 26 June in the Greater Wellington region.

“Our two DHBs, along with our PHO partners, have worked tirelessly since Wednesday to ensure that our community testing centres (CTC) remained well resourced and staffed for the Wellington region. We would like to thank the people of the Wellington and Hutt Valley for getting out and getting tested.”

Locations and hours for our CTCs are available on the two DHBs’ websites: and

Testing priority continues to be given to those individuals who were at a location of interest or are symptomatic. Anyone who was at a location of interest or is symptomatic should ring Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or their GP for advice on testing and referral to book a test.

People are asked to book in advance for a test.
