Daily testing rates have dropped slightly from the previous month, where East Grampians Health Service averaged 30 tests per day throughout June.
Meanwhile, Wimmera Health Care Group conducted 49 tests on Wednesday as news of two new cases of COVID-19 broke across the state.
A WHCG spokesman said it was the most tests the hospital had conducted in a day.
"We do not have the capacity to undertake any more tests per day," he said.
"Our clinic is fully booked out today (Thursday) as well."
A spokeswoman from Stawell Regional Health said its COVID-19 testing capability would expand due to growing demand.
"We are conducting about 30 tests per day; last week we were fully booked out every day," the spokeswoman said.
"We are looking to increase our capacity to test at our respiratory clinic and open up a drive-through testing clinic from Monday."
