Drive-thru testing to begin in Covington

Posted

COVINGTON — The Indiana Department of Health and the Fountain & Warren County Health Department are partnering to hold a free drive-up clinic for COVID-19 testing.

The free clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at the Covington Fire Station, 210 Fourth St., Covington.

Testing will be available to all Indiana residents regardless of symptoms. Children as young as 2 years of age can be tested with parental consent.

The FWHD staff urge all residents in the Covington area and beyond to take advantage of this testing opportunity. Many people with COVID-19 can still spread the disease but feel completely fine. Testing is a useful tool to help slow the spread of this virus and will help protect your family and others in the community. Please spread the word and encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to get tested. 

Hoosiers will not be charged for testing and insurance is not required. If you have private health insurance, bring that information with you.

Remember to follow the COVID-19 basics: stay home if you are sick, wear a mask if you are in public, keep your distance, wash your hands and follow any quarantine or isolation recommendations. 

Working together and for each other, is our surest way through this pandemic and will help us get safely to a vaccine.
