Wild winds are continuing to wreak havoc on Covid-19 testing centres in Melbourne’s south-east, with a third site forced to close.
Peninsula Health confirmed on Tuesday afternoon its clinic outside the Frankston Basketball Stadium in Seaford had shut temporarily due to strong winds, AAP reports.
“We’ll reopen this testing location, as soon as it is deemed safe for our staff and our community,” it tweeted.
Two other test sites, drive-through setups at Casey Fields and Pakenham Recreation Reserve, were shut earlier on Tuesday.
The Department of Health and Human Services said the sites’ open marquees made the structures potential hazards, while staff could also struggle to write notes in the blustery conditions.
Nearby sites in Clyde, Berwick and Beaconsfield were kept open to allow residents to be tested, the department said.
