Daily PCR testing at South Sound Community Centre to relocate

The Public Health Department has announced that the daily PCR testing walk-in clinics normally held at South Sound Community Centre will be changed to a drive-thru at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex parking lot effective Friday, 21 January 2022. The new drive-through clinic will be available 7am – 10am daily.

Isolation/quarantine exit testing and confirmation PCR from a positive lateral flow test will be accommodated at the new drive-thru site.

“We are aware of the heavy traffic of persons requiring PCR tests at the South Sound Community Centre and have been working on alleviating this issue by identifying a more suitable location,” said Dr Samuel Williams-Rodriguez, Medical Officer of Health.

“After the successful launch of the new drive-thru clinic at Truman Bodden Sports Complex parking lot earlier this week, we have determined that this site meets the needs of this daily testing clinic and allows for better crowd control, a more streamlined process for patients as they will be tested from the comfort of their vehicle. We would like to thank the Department of Sports for their collaboration and use of this space as part of our ongoing COVID-19 response.”
