BENDIGO Health is advising that there is a longer than usual wait for COVID-19 test results due to the demand in testing.
"We understand this is an anxious time," a hospital spokesperson said in a Facebook post.
"If you have been waiting and think it has been too long, please do not come into the clinic. Our team does not release the results, they come from the ACL lab."
If anyone is waiting longer than usual for a result, contact the ACL Results line on 1300 134 111.
