In response to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the community, EACH has established Coronavirus (COVID-19) Screening Clinics across the outer eastern region of Melbourne.
The Clinics provide safe rapid response screening services for people to get tested for COVID-19. Screenings are for anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms and do not require immediate emergency level care.
We are currently providing COVID-19 testing in Ringwood, Boronia, Lilydale, Yarra Junction and Yarra Glen.
If you or a loved one are experiencing COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms, please visit one of our clinics to be tested for COVID-19:
For more information please contact us on:
1300 219 449 (Mon - Fri: 8.30am - 4pm)
Due to the high volume of tests done across Victoria, there are major delays in tests being processed. We are working with pathology services to get results to you, this may take in excess of 7 business days.
The health and well-being of our clients, staff and the wider community, remains our highest priority.
In setting up Screening Clinics, we have put in place strict medical and clinical protocols to ensure that the highest level of care is provided.
Furthermore, we have implemented measures that bolster our existing Health & Safety protocols that include:
- Increased cleaning schedule focusing on high volume touchpoints
- Increased hand sanitiser available at our centres
- Pre-screening of all people accessing the services in accordance with Department of Health guidelines
- Waiting room configurations to allow for social distancing on site
