COVID-19 TURANGI SWABBING STATION
May 2nd from 10am to 12pm at the Turangi Community Health Centre.
Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 is encouraged to drop in. You can drive through with your car, but if you bike or walk you will also be tested.
Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to a range of other illnesses such as influenza and do not necessarily mean that you have COVID-19. Symptoms include:
· a cough
· a fever (at least 38°C)
· shortness of breath
· sore throat
· a head cold, e.g. sneezing, runny nose
· temporary loss of smell.
Sore throats are important too, so if you are aged 3 to 35 years old, and have a sore throat, drop in to get your throat swabbed to check for strep A which can lead to rheumatic fever.
