Testing criteria changed due to country-wide shortage of rapid Covid tests

Due to the limited supply of test kits the Indiana Department of Health is allocating to local testing sites, the criteria to obtain a rapid test has changed once again. 

Rapid Covid-19 testing is now available if you meet all three of the following criteria:

  1. Available to individuals 18 and younger and individuals 50 and older
  2. You must have symptoms directly related to Covid-19
  3. You must schedule an appointment at the website below or call the phone number if no internet access is available.  

If there are no appointments available, the testing site is either out of rapid test kits or the schedule is full for that day. The health department apologized for the inconvenience this could cause and stated they will continue to work with the IDOH to increase the supply of rapid tests if possible.

The regional testing site is located at the former Ruxer’s golf course building, 400 South Clay St., Jasper. The phone number is 812-675-5084 and it is open the following hours: Tuesday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; closed on Sundays and Mondays. Closed from 1:00 – 2:00 pm for lunch
