COVID testing sites are going over capacity, sometimes before even opening.
The congestion is occurring at testing sites across metropolitan Melbourne.
This is causing ongoing traffic congestion, especially around the Wootten Road Reserve testing site.
Western Health is responsible for traffic management at the site and they have been approached by Wyndham City Council to provide increased resources.
In a statement made on Wyndham City’s social media page today, they said, “Our Local Laws officers will also be doing regular patrols to address any illegal parking.”
They went on to say, “This is an extremely challenging time for everyone and we thank you for your ongoing patience.”
If you have symptoms and are unable to get a test stay home and phone your GP or Nurse-on-Call for guidance 1300 60 60 24.
