Covid-19 tests

Truckies can now get free Covid tests in Tailem Bend, SA, from midnight to 4pm, seven days a week.

After lobbying from the South Australian Road Transport Association, the SA Government conceded hours needed to be extended to accommodate truckies’ schedules.

The SA Pathology testing service can be found at the Caltex Tailem Bend Roadhouse, 8786 Princes Highway.

No booking or appointment with a GP is required to access this service.

The collection, which consists of a nasal and throat swab, takes just a few minutes.
