Testing

The State Government has announced new coronavirus testing sites in Brunswick and Glenroy, and will keep open the existing one in Fawkner.

This testing will play a big part in getting our community tested and a better understanding on how this virus is spreading. 

If you have symptoms, do not attend the mobile test site. You will need to be tested via a drive-through site or at another testing site to ensure we can keep everyone safe. See other options.

  • Gillon Reserve Pavilion, (Hope St, Brunswick) open 10am - 4pm
  • RMIT University, Brunswick (Dawson St) open 10am - 4pm

*The closing time refers to approx. time last person will be seen.  If there are long queues, the line may close before the scheduled time. If you arrive after 3pm, you may not be able to be tested.
