Te Awamutu Library will host a pop-up Community Based Assessment Centre for Covid-19 tests on Wednesday, May 13.

The centre is run by the Waikato District Health Board and will be open from 10am until 3pm.

The pop-up assessment centre is only for assessment and testing if you have symptoms of Covid-19. They are not for treatment or vaccinations. For these a general practice, doctor or pharmacy must be contacted.

These centres are run throughout the Waikato with the mobile centres moving daily and are designed to target the areas where there has been less testing.
