Commencing Wednesday 29 September, Lithgow’s drive-through testing clinic at Tony Luchetti Showground will re-open once more!

Commencing Wednesday 29 September, Lithgow City Council is very pleased to announce that the Tony Luchetti Showground will be hosting a second drive-through testing clinic. Opening hours of this facility are 8AM to 2PM, Monday to Friday and 8AM to 1PM Saturdays. This facility will be operated in close consultation with NSW Health and Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology.

“When I last attended the site with Deputy Mayor Wayne McAndrew I was pleased to see the initial demand for these services”, said Lithgow City Council’s Mayor, Councillor Ray Thompson. It is great to see that the community is heeding the advice of health care professionals and getting tested if in any doubt.”

“Once more, I strongly encourage all residents to get tested if they feel there is even the slightest chance of exposure to a confirmed case, close contact or casual contact”, said Council’s Deputy Mayor, Councillor Wayne McAndrew. “Our best protection is immediate testing, isolation and vaccination. If not for yourself, please think of your local community and those living among us who are vulnerable or at risk. I ask all residents to make use of our local testing and vaccination facilities and closely follow the directions of NSW Health.”

Please note that only drive through tests are provided at the Tony Luchetti facility, with walk-in tests still welcomed at Lithgow Hospital.

Lithgow City Council thanks NSW Health and Douglass Hanly Moir for their continued efforts in making the arrangements for this service. For further details regarding COVID-19 testing, please visit here and here.

It is most important that all residents comply with health orders, maintain all health safeguards, and get vaccinated as soon as practicable.
