2020-21 Holiday Season Collection Information

ALL Pathlab collection facilities will be closed as follows over the holiday season:

  • Friday 25th, Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th and Monday 28th December 2020
  • Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th January 2021

COVID swab collection is not available at any Pathlab site during those dates, however processing of all tests, including COVID will continue, with the results for COVID tests emailed.

We also request that blood specimens are only taken over those dates if absolutely urgent - results will be released in the usual manner.

Travellers to China will need to be COVID tested in Auckland, as Pathlab does not currently have the IgM test as per their government requirements.
