COVID-19 testing site to open Wednesday at armoryMay 5, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — The Indiana State Department of Health announced last week a partnership with OptumServe Health Services to expand COVID-19 testing in Indiana. One of the new sites will open on Wednesday at the National Guard Armory, 1481 Bartley St., Jasper.
People needing tested may register by appointment only, either online here or by phone at: 888-634-1123.
Individuals must be symptomatic, be a close contact of a positive case or a symptomatic resident of congregate living settings to be eligible for testing. You will go to the portal and self-report your symptoms using the online screening tool. If you qualify, an option will appear to register for an appointment date and time.
There is no charge for testing. However, if you do have private health care insurance, you are asked to bring that to the testing site.
People can expect to get the results within 48 hours. Optum will send a text or email to the patient if the test is negative. A phone call will be given if there is a positive test result.
The Dubois County Health Department will not be involved with the direct operations of OptumServe's clinic. The county health department will receive the positive case results of Dubois County residents and will continue to work with the ISDH and local officials to ensure that contacts of the patients are identified and monitored.
