Island Health’s COVID-19 testing and collection site in Duncan is still open.

The health agency confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the location on Polkey Road — the only such site between Westshore and Nanaimo — is still open, even though it wasn’t included on an updated list of sites released on Friday, Sept. 24.

The omission led to some confusion on social media.

The Duncan testing site is located in the ICBC Claim Centre at 5151 Polkey Road.
