HAZARDOUS weather conditions have prompted health officials to close some COVID testing clinics.
The University of Newcastle COVID-19 drive through clinic will close at 2pm today (Monday), and the Tomaree drive through clinic will be closed all day.
Hunter New England Health said those who had booked in at the University of Newcastle clinic will have their appointment rescheduled, or can attend clinics at the John Hunter, Belmont, or Calvary Mater Newcastle hospitals, or one of the privately run testing clinics available in Tomaree, Adamstown and Warners Bay.
"Those booked at the Tomaree drive through clinic today can have their swab attended at a temporary clinic which has been set up at Tomaree Community Hospital," a spokesperson said.
"This clinic will operate from 9am to 3pm today [Monday], and those wishing to be tested must call 4964 7497 to arrange an appointment prior to attending."
