Starting later this week, ISDH will be offering free testing in the following counties: Elkhart, Lake, Warrick, Brown, Henry, Kosciusko, Marshall, Ohio/Switzerland, Perry, Tippecanoe and Wells. In addition, a mobile testing option will be available in Gibson County, with coverage extending to Knox and Sullivan counties. Counties were chosen based on their per capita case, testing and positivity rates, as well as the population of industry and agricultural workers and the current availability of local testing options.

Testing will start Tuesday in some locations; as details are finalized, locations will be added to the testing map at www.coronavirus.in.gov. Testing will be limited to 200 people per day at each site.

Most locations are expected to be in operation for two weeks, but all sites and emerging hotspots will be evaluated throughout the testing period so that resources are deployed most effectively.
