The Reopen Evansville Task Force announced another extension of COVID-19 testing at C.K. Newsome Center.
Testing at the site — which is administered by OptumServe — will be extended through October, and is available for those that live and work in the Evansville region.
Operations will continue Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Registration is required. Those needing a test can register at lhi.care/covidtesting or call 888-634-1116.
Testing is free to all and no medical insurance is necessary. However, residents with existing insurance are asked to provide that information during the scheduling process.
The site was made possible through a collaboration between Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, the Vanderburgh County Health Department (VCHD) and the Indiana State Department of Health.
NAACP Hand Up not a Handout Initiative
Indiana residents experiencing energy insecurities may receive help from the Indiana State National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
This statewide initiative will provide financial assistance to qualifying residents up to $300 while funds last.
Applicants must receive a referral from the local NAACP branch.
Guidelines and application can be found on the Reopen Evansville Assistance Portal.
