The Baillie Henderson Hospital COVID-19 testing site will close at 4pm today 6 January 2022 to allow for important upgrades to improve traffic flow and increase the clinic’s capacity.

The temporary testing site at the Toowoomba Showgrounds will reopen tomorrow Friday 7 January 2022 until Sunday 9 January 2022. The site will operate from 8.30am to 4pm over the three days.

COVID-19 response lead Michelle Forrest said the works to the Baillie Henderson Hospital testing site would include the introduction of a third lane for testing, as well as improvements to how traffic will flow through the site.

“The site, which has been operational for over a year, also requires maintenance to improve the staff buildings."
