Due to an ongoing supply of materials needed to perform PCR tests, Capital Pathology-run clinics in Nicholls and Holt will not open on Tuesday. In addition, the RAT kit at the ACT Health Kambah Center will be limited to one per person instead of the two previously available. People who need a follow-up test should return at another time. The Kambah Test Center will only distribute rapid tests with PCR tests to be performed from the Mitchell drive through the clinic or Garran Center.
