Pop up testing sites this week


This week there are two pop-up testing centres – one today at the Taupo Great Lake Centre Monday 10am-12noon, and Tuesday 22 September at the Countdown Fenton Street carpark, near the Mobil service station, from 10am to 12noon.

People working in the areas of hospitality, travel (bus and taxi drivers), tourism and motel/hotel accommodation are all encouraged to get tested. Those who work in these sectors do not need to have symptoms to be tested. This is part of routine surveillance testing.

As with previous pop-up testing centres, we will also be offering flu vaccinations and throat swabs, along with COVID testing.

The opening hours in Taupo are changing.

From Monday 21 September, the Taupo Covid-19 testing centre at 79 Miro Street will open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 3pm.

It will be closed on Tuesday, Thursday and weekends.
