Djerriwarrh Health has hit a milestone this week, chalking up it’s 10,000th person who was screened for COVID19.
The service was one of the first to set up a drive-through clinic, which is still located in Barries Rd Melton.
A spokesperson said the feat was impressive, given that the health service was ‘small’, only employing a total of around 700 staff in Bacchus Marsh and Melton.
“It goes to show how a small health service can make a big difference to their community,” the spokesperson said.
The drive-through clinic has reduced its hours to 10.30am-6pm weekdays and 9am-12pm weekends.
To date, Moorabool Shire has recorded 3 COVID19 cases. None are currently active.
The City of Melton has 49 – clocking up one more overnight. Five cases are active.
