A pop-up testing clinic for COVID-19 will be operating on Friday at the Mann Central shopping centre in Wodonga for people who have no symptoms.
Albury Wodonga Health will host the one-day clinic between 10am and 2.45pm.
The clinic, established in line with the Department of Health and Human Services' testing blitz across Victoria, will only be testing people who are well and don't have any symptoms.
It is aimed at identifying any unknown occurrence of the virus in the community.
The voluntary testing is not limited to Victorians, but people should bring their Medicare card if they want to be tested.
AWH pandemic response director Sally Squire said the clinic would provide the opportunity for any member of the public to voluntarily be tested for COVID-19.
"We encourage the community to continue to support the testing program to ensure we have the best possible picture of any spread of COVID-19 in the community," she said.
Anyone being tested at the pop-up clinic will be asked to complete a consent/screening form to confirm they are without symptoms.
They will be asked to provide their contact details - preferably a mobile number - so they can be advised of their result.
Those members of the public who do have symptoms - however mild - should seek testing through the appropriate channels.
"Anyone who has symptoms and is seeking testing needs to have an appointment to be tested," Ms Squire said.
"They should call either their GP or Albury Wodonga Health on (02) 6058 4444 to discuss their symptoms and receive an appointment time."
Ms Squire said Wednesday was the busiest day to date at the AWH COVID-19 clinic with an additional 92 screens and 104 tests.
The Albury Wodonga Clinic has now conducted 3104 screening calls to date.
There have been 2007 patients tested.
