The Bayside Council averages more than 3,000 COVID-19 tests a day.
“I want to thank everyone who comes forward and gets tested,” said Bayside Council Mayor Joe Awada.
“It shows that we are serious about getting out of the lockdown and controlling the spread of this virus,” he said.
“If you have even the slightest symptoms, please be tested. The sooner you get your negative result, the better it is for your own peace of mind.
“It also means less chance of passing it on to a loved one, a friend or a stranger.
“Continue with the big turnout, stay home, get tested and vaccinated.”
