The Batemans Bay community has answered the call to COVID-19 testing in droves - and that means patience is at a premium.
The Hanging Rock testing site has established a checkpoint in the car park and from there carloads are called up for testing.
One woman the Bay Post spoke with said she'd arrived at the testing clinic aout 10.15am but expected to be waiting for much of the day.
And due to the outbreak of the highly infectious virus, one nearby cafe has closed its doors.
The sign on the Tribe Cafe door read: "Due to the current COVID-19 situation in the local area, Tribe Cafe will be closed for the safety of staff and customers. Hopefully this won't be for long! Please say safe ..."
Meanwhile ACT chief health officer Kerryn Coleman signed a new public health direction on Monday morning, requiring anyone who visited the Soldiers Club on Monday, July 13; Wednesday, July 15 to Friday, July 17, to quarantine at home for 14 days.
Dr Coleman said about 60 people who had attended the club were currently in isolation in Canberra.
There are eight cases of COVID-19 linked to the Batemans Bay club. A Sydney father and son who tested positive were at the club on July 13.
