Please be prepared to wait at the centres and do not get out of your car. You will be greeted at the centre by trained medical professionals who will be in full personal protection gear (PPE) and who will ask you a number of questions while you remain in your car and may take a temperature check to confirm if testing is required. If they need to carry out a test, they will take a swab from inside your nose. This swab will then be sent to the Waikato DHB laboratory for testing.
Attending the centre doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be swabbed for COVID-19.
