The UFS COVID-19 testing clinic is today celebrating one year of helping to keep our community safe!

We’ve performed over 42,720 tests and recorded 35 positive cases. Our busiest period was last July when we peaked at 310 tests per day!

During this time we’ve been supported by 34 nurses, 14 reception staff, eight GPs and five security officers. The clinic was set up last April when we were all still processing what impact the pandemic would have on our lives and the lives of many around the world. We are so grateful in Australia to have been spared the immense tragedies that have unfolded in so many communities around the world.

Originally set up at the Lucas Community Hub, the clinic now operates out of 15 Errard Street North in central Ballarat.
