Fishers Health DepartmentToday, the Fishers Health Department announced it is expanding its free COVID-19 testing to all residents aged 12 and up. The FHD COVID-19 testing program, which was launched in April, has tested more than 3,000 residents.

Parents and guardians may begin scheduling children aged 12-17 beginning Saturday, June 20 with appointments beginning Monday, June 22. Residents wishing to secure a COVID-19 testing appointment for their minor child(ren) twelve and older will need to consent for any minor and accompany the child to the testing.

Minor children who are sick or experiencing any unusual symptoms should be fully assessed by their primary medical provider. The assessment and COVID-19 testing are not medical evaluations and should not be considered a substitute for any testing ordered by a medical provider.

The Fishers Health Department provides free COVID-19 testing for all Fishers residents at its drive-thru testing site, located at 3 Municipal Dr. Residents do not have to be symptomatic or part of an at-risk group to qualify for testing. Residents may learn more about testing and take the assessment to schedule a testing appointment at fishersrecovery.com/testing.
