Covid 19 testing clinic here next week

Today member for New England Barnaby Joyce said a pop up coronavirus testing facility is set to operate in Tamworth early next week.

Mr Joyce also said diagnostic facilities will be coming into a pathology area in Tamworth and the announcement comes less than a month after he stated he would do everything in his power to ensure a testing clinic was made available in the New England electorate.

Mr Joyce also urged eligible business owners to apply for the $1500 wage subsidy to keep workers employed as soon as possible.
