The Dubois/Spencer/Martin County COVID-19 testing site at the former Ruxer Golf Course building in Jasper has closed as of July 8, due to a lack of funding.
The state-funded COVID-19 testing site grant that provided this free service to Dubois, Spencer and Martin county residents expired June 30. The second round of funding for the site was due to arrive on July 1, but has not yet been allocated. Until a new contract is signed, the testing site will remain closed.
If you have questions, you can contact the Dubois County Health Department at 812-481-7050.
Other options for COVID-19 testing are:
• Memorial Hospital Emergency Department (800 W. Ninth St., Jasper): Patient is evaluated by a provider, who determines testing and treatment. Open 24 hours a day.
• CVS (multiple locations): Tests anyone with or without symptoms. Availability based on locations. Schedule an appointment through https://cvs.com.
