INDIANAPOLIS (WFFT) — Governor Eric Holcomb announced Friday the coronavirus Optum testing sites across the state will now be open to everyone who wants to get tested.
Previously they were only allowed for people who had symptoms, were high risk, or had contact with someone who had tested positive.
You can find Optum testing sites locally in Allen, Adams, DeKalb, Grant, Huntington, Jay, Kosciusko, Noble, Steuben, Wabash and Whitley counties.
State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box says they want to make sure all Hoosiers are able to get tested if they want it.
"We recognize that this is a significant change from our focus on high-risk individuals and those who are symptomatic,” said Box. “Our testing capacity has improved significantly since the start of this pandemic and we want Hoosiers to take advantage of that."
Dr. Box says they are still keeping an eye on vulnerable populations and long term care facilities.
