The Edenhope and District Memorial Hospital has reopened a COVID-19 testing clinic this week as part of a statewide testing blitz.
The drive-through clinic opened on Monday and will run until Thursday, opening from 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm.
Coronavirus cases in Melbourne have increased rapidly across the last week, with 127 new cases recorded on Monday.
A spokesperson for the Edenhope hospital said patients did not need an appointment to be tested and do not need to leave their cars during the process. They said testing would be done near the entrance to Elsie Bennett Centre at the hospital.
The same clinic was open briefly in May, with 46 people tested on the first day.
The spokesperson said the maximum wait time during the first testing blitz was 30 minutes, whereas some Melbourne clinics were facing waiting periods of up to four hours.
The spokesperson encouraged anybody to get tested, regardless of whether they had symptoms.
