Appointments can be made starting today. Testing is for anyone who lives or works in the state of Indiana. Anyone now can be tested, even those who are not showing symptoms.

The site will not do COVID-19 antibody testing.

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.

The Dubois County Health Department will not be involved with the direct operations of OptumServe’s clinic. The department will receive the positive cases results of Dubois County residents and will continue to work with the Indiana State Department of Health and local officials to ensure that contacts of the patients are identified and monitored.
