WNSWLHD COVID-19 mobile screening and testing service manager, Sue Turcato said that the service aims to improve screening and testing rates within the LHD targeting rural and remote communities where testing is not as readily available as in the bigger centres.
"The Blayney community fully supported the service with 164 people tested on the day," she said.
"The good news is that all tests were negative and we continue to encourage the residents of Blayney to remain vigilant in regards to social distancing, hand washing and staying home if suffering from respiratory symptoms."
