State health department to open COVID-19 test site

The Indiana State Department of Health plans to open a COVID-19 testing site Wednesday in Seymour.

The site, which will be at Seymour High School, 1350 W. Second St., will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.

The testing is open to symptomatic health care workers, first responders or essential workers, individuals who have symptoms and are in a high-risk category due to age, weight or underlying health conditions and those who live in the same residence as one of the priority categories.

Participants will need a driver’s license or other state-issued identification card. Tests will be conducted as long as supplies last and will be limited to one individual per vehicle.
