Whanganui District Health Board media release

With the move to Phase 3, the use of Rapid Antigen Tests (RAT) and Omicron out in our community, it is time for the CBAC to close its doors and to move the testing efforts out into the community.

From today onwards the iconic white tent present in the hospital car park will no longer be providing COVID-19 testing of any type.

There are multiple RAT distribution points throughout our rohe where people can collect tests from which will increase the ability for our community to get tested if they become unwell or are a household contact.

Opening for business from today there will be a pop-up RAT distribution at the Whanganui Racecourse, Purnell Street entrance from 8.30am to 3.00pm, seven days a week.

We strongly encourage people to register for there RAT test, using this link. This will save you a lot of time at the collection area.

For details of RAT distribution points in our rohe please check the Whanganui DHB web page  or the Whanganui DHB Facebook page.
