Covid-19: Six testing centres still open in Auckland, none on weekends

From Morning Report, 7:08 am on 20 October 2020

There are no Covid-19 community testing centres open on the weekends in Auckland, and just six are still operating during the week.

People who want to get tested on the weekends will have to go to an urgent care clinic or their GP - that's if they can find one that's open.

Minister of Health Chris Hipkins says testing must be readily accessible and he wants the city's health authorities to look again at the new plan.
