Testing also is available to symptomatic individuals who live with one of these workers, as well as to people who have symptoms of COVID-19 and underlying medical conditions that put them at higher risk, such as obesity, high blood pressure or diabetes.

Testing is limited to one person per vehicle. All individuals must be Indiana residents and present state-issued identification at the time of testing.

ISDH also announced today that 577 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through testing at ISDH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and private laboratories. That brings to 11,210 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the novel coronavirus following corrections to the previous day’s total.

A total of 562 Hoosiers have died to date. Deaths are reported based on when data are received by ISDH and occurred over multiple days.

To date, 61,142 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 56,873 on Saturday.
