Indiana Department of Health to Close Optum Testing Sites

The Indiana Department of Health says it will close COVID-19 testing sites run by OptumServe Health Services effective June 30 now that a robust community-led testing network is in place, which includes pharmacies, providers, clinics and local health departments. Since May 2020, more than half-a-million free COVID-19 tests have been provided at an OptumServe site. State Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box says demand for testing has decreased across Indiana and noted that free testing will still be available at more than 250 locations. You can find a COVID-19 testing site near you by visiting www.coronavirus.in.gov .“While our case counts have fallen significantly, we must continue to take steps to reduce the spread of disease,” said Dr. Box. “We remain committed to ensuring that any Hoosier who wants or needs to be tested can receive that testing in a location that’s convenient.”
