The Marshall County Health Department released the following information: The Indiana Department of Health has depleted its inventory of rapid antigen COVID-19 tests and does not expect any additional deliveries for the foreseeable future due to a national shortage. Therefore, our local State funded FREE COVID-19 testing sites will be out of RAPID antigen COVID-19 tests soon. You can attempt to secure rapid testing through a private provider, such as a pharmacy or primary care provider. You can also attempt to purchase OTC rapid test kits from area retailers if available. Please do not utilize the hospital Emergency Departments for the sole purpose of getting tested for COVID-19.
Our State funded FREE testing sites have plenty of PCR tests, which results can take up to 5-7 days. There are no restrictions to receive a PCR test.
FREE PCR testing is still available at: LifePlex 2855 Miller Dr.
Symptomatic individuals should continue to stay home while waiting for test results, and positive individuals with symptoms should stay home for at least 5 full days and until they are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and symptoms are improving.
