State health officials to close COVID-19 testing sites on June 30

After 14 months of testing, officials say more than 541,000 free COVID-19 tests have been provided at an OptumServe site. “We are grateful to OptumServe for its work to ensure that Hoosiers had COVID testing available to them while we worked to build more local capacity. Without their work, many Hoosiers who were exposed to COVID or showing symptoms might never have known their status. I have no doubt that having this resource available helped reduce the spread of COVID in our state.”

Box said demand for testing has decreased across the state and noted that free testing will remain available at more than 250 sites after the Optum sites close. At its peak, organizers say OptumServe provided testing in 53 counties. Currently, 30 counties have an OptumServe testing site.
