The Elkhart County Health Department opened a new COVID-19 testing center Wednesday.

Free drive-through tests are now available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays at the Pierre Moran Park pool (119 Wolf Ave., Elkhart).

 

The health department says only PCR tests will be available due to a shortage of rapid antigen tests. No appointments, ID or insurance is necessary to get tested.

 

The health department asks that cars enter on East Hubbard Avenue from Prairie Street.

Ahead of the Labor Day holiday on Sept. 6, the Indiana Department of Health will be offering COVID-19 tests and vaccines in Goshen. 

A spokeswoman for the Elkhart County Health Department says the clinic is in response to the county’s rising positivity rate and recent move to the state’s “orange” category, which indicates high community spread of the virus.
