New COVID-19 clinic in Castle Hill

Jigna Thakkar and Eva Liu are ready to test people at Castle Hill Showground.

Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) has today opened another pop-up COVID-19 clinic in Castle Hill to provide more convenient access to testing.

The latest drive-through clinic will be open 8am-5pm Monday to Friday and 8am-2.30pm Saturday at Castle Hill Showground, accessed via Showground Road.

Anyone arriving for testing is advised to stay inside their vehicle at all times. Health staff follow strict infection control protocols for the safety of themselves and others.

The latest pop-up clinic follows the success of the pop-up clinics continuing to run at locations including Parramatta Community Health Centre, Merrylands Park and Western Sydney University Parramatta South campus.

WSLHD chief executive Graeme Loy thanked Hills Shire Council and other partners for their assistance in opening new testing sites across the District.

There are now more than 20 testing clinics across Western Sydney Local Health District – find your nearest one here, and stay up to date with the latest COVID-19 news at the NSW Health website.
