The temporary COVID-19 testing clinic at Georges Heights will cease operations on schedule tomorrow after five weeks at Georges Heights.
The pop-up clinic operated by private provider Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology opened on 27 December and will close as planned on Friday 28 January.
Mosman Council worked closely with several agencies, including Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, to secure the site which effectively provided important extra capacity during peak demand.
“Council is deeply grateful to the Harbour Trust’s Chair Joseph Carrozzi, Executive Director Janet Carding and staff for stepping in and making facilities available for the testing site during a very challenging time of great need for the local community,” Mosman Mayor Carolyn Corrigan said.
“Despite the increased use of rapid antigen tests and a reduction in demand for PCR testing clinics we have strongly encouraged Douglass Hanly Moir to continue looking for alternate sites, noting the difficulties in finding a venue that is both easily accessible and does not block intersections, driveways and regional traffic flows.”
Council also acknowledged the forbearance of local residents, Headland Park tenants, visitors and others impacted by the temporary clinic.
