The drive-through coronavirus testing centre at the Dave Andreychuk Mountain Arena has been busy since it began April 17.

Four nurses, plus four administrative staff from the Hamilton Family Health Team and McMaster Family Health Team, are taking 60 nose swabs a day from the vehicles that are driving in and out of the Hester Street rink via the Zamboni door. The nurses doing the swabbing are wearing full protective gear.

The samples are being sent to the Public Health of Ontario lab for testing and the results are usually known in three days.

A referral from your doctor or Hamilton Public Health Services and an appointment is required before you will be admitted to the drive-through.

The testing centre runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. seven days a week, although those hours may expand.
