The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District will open a new COVID-19 pop up testing clinic at St Georges Basin this morning as demand for testing increases.

The free clinic will be located at the St Georges Basin Community Health Centre at 21 Mereton Street.

It will be operational between 8am and 4pm weekdays.

No appointments or referrals are required.

The Sanctuary Point Ulladulla Respiratory Clinic is also providing more testing following the closure of the Wildginger Restaurant in Huskisson after two people that dined there tested positive for the illness.

Hours have been extended from 8am to 8pm, through to Sunday.

Clinics are also located at Wollongong, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven and Milton Ulladulla Hospitals while a drive-through clinic is still operating at the Albion Park Showground.
