Tony Luchetti Showground COVID-19 Testing Clinic Now Open

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 25 Aug 2021
Commencing Wednesday 25 August, Lithgow’s drive-through clinic at Tony Luchetti Showground is now open!

In close consultation with NSW Health and Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology, Lithgow City Council is very pleased to announce that Lithgow’s drive-through clinic at Tony Luchetti Showground is now open! Opening hours of this facility are 8AM to 2PM, Monday to Friday and 8AM to 1PM Saturdays.

“I attended the site with Deputy Mayor Wayne McAndrew first thing Wednesday morning, and it was fantastic to see a queue of cars waiting for their test”, said Lithgow City Council’s Mayor, Councillor Ray Thompson. “I am very pleased that Lithgow was prepared and able to provide a suitable site, traffic management resources and amenities to facilitate this service almost immediately.”

“With this service now in place, I strongly encourage all residents to get tested if they feel there is even the slightest chance of exposure to a confirmed case or close contact”, said Council’s Deputy Mayor, Councillor Wayne McAndrew. “Our best protection is immediate testing and isolation. I ask all residents to make use of our local testing facilities and, for their own protection and the protection of their community, 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 efforts in making the arrangements for this service. For further details regarding COVID-19 testing, please visit here

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