Virus vigilance

Ready to test the public for Covid-19 at the new Dunedin testing centre in Malcolm St yesterday are swabbers Tuihana Taiaroa-Smithies and Junaid Gydien.

People can drive through or walk up to the centre to be tested.

The centre tested a few people on Monday as a trial run and opened officially yesterday.

Ms Taiaroa-Smithies said that after a bit of a morning rush when the site first opened, there had been a steady stream of people throughout the day.

The clinic tested 25 people yesterday.
