Please Wear A Mask

ISDH has also partnered with OptumServe to provide test sites across the state. Registration for testing at an ISDH/Optum site is required and can be completed at https://lhi.care/covidtesting or by phone at 888-634-1116. Hoosiers will not be charged for testing, and insurance is not required. If you have private health insurance, please bring that information with you.

Anyone who lives or works in Indiana can be tested at an Optum site, but you should consider getting tested particularly if you are at high risk because you are over age 65, have diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or another underlying condition, or if you are a member of a minority population that’s at greater risk – even if you don’t have symptoms. This also includes close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 positive patients when it is imperative that the contact continues to work and/or have close contact with at-risk populations.

COVID-19 UPDATE

The Indiana State Department of Health has confirmed 392,663 positive cases throughout the state of Indiana. There have been 6,109 total deaths. Ohio County has 272 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of Tuesday  December 8th, 2020.

CLOTH FACE COVERINGS

Recent studies have shown that a significant portion of individuals with COVID-19 lack symptoms and that even those who eventually develop symptoms can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity — for example, speaking, coughing or sneezing — even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores and pharmacies, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus.

Please see link below for more information regarding face masks.
