COVID testing centre changes

COVID-19 testing stations in Rotorua and Taupo are making some changes.

In Taupo the test site has moved to 95 Miro St and the Rotorua site is reducing its hours due to a reduction in demand for tests.

The Taupo site has been at the AC Baths since March but from Friday 17 July will be situated at 95 Miro St. Tests are available Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 3pm. There are no tests available on the weekend.

The Rotorua site recently moved to 2 Vaughan Rd. As from Monday 27 July it will open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 4pm. It will also be closed on the weekend.

Demand for testing has significantly reduced from its peak of a combined 910 tests at both sites the week after the managed isolation facilities opened to 149 last week.

If there is a change in demand the hours will be revisited.

Opening hours:
Rotorua - Monday through to Friday 9am-4pm. NOTE: FROM 27 July, Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9am-4pm
Taupo - Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10am to 3pm
Both testing centres are closed weekends
