State's COVID-19 testing site to temporarily close

From Local Sources

JASPER — The state's OptumServe COVID-19 testing site located at the National Guard Armory in Jasper will temporarily close so that it can become a mobile/traveling site to test employees at skilled nursing facilities, according to a press release sent by the Dubois County Health Department.

The armory testing site will be closed starting Tuesday and through the end of June. Optum will contact any individuals who have scheduled appointments and reschedule/or direct to the next closest Optum location or other testing site.

This OptumServe mobile/traveling site will assist with testing employees in nursing facilities over the next three to four weeks. The Indiana State Department of Health and OptumServe anticipate the closure of the testing site to be temporary, but will assess reopening sites after the testing in skilled nursing facilities is complete. Call Optum at 888-634-1116 with any questions.
