Due to flooding and road closures, the dedicated heavy vehicle Covid-19 testing sites located at Boondall and Goondiwindi have permanently ceased operations.
Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads heavy vehicles unit also advised yesterday that the remaining heavy vehicle testing sites located at Charlton and Port of Brisbane will also cease operations on Monday, March 7.
Pathology Queensland has also issued the following reminder regarding PCR testing at private providers:
The temporary arrangement with private pathology provider partners to accept people presenting without a GP referral for payment by Queensland Health will cease at midnight on March 7.
All Queensland Health Operated Clinics provide free PCR testing for anyone:
- with symptoms
- who is a close contact of a positive case
- following a quarantine or isolation direction.
Private Pathology operated clinics only provide free Medicare funded PCR testing for anyone with a Medicare card and a GP referral. If you do not have a GP referral or Medicare card, you will need to present to a Queensland Health operated clinic.
