The Indiana State Department of Health began conducting drive-thru COVID-19 testing in Jefferson County Thursday at North Madison Christian Church, 1400 E. St. Road 62, Madison. The testing, which is free and runs through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., is open to any symptomatic individual that is a health care worker, first responder, essential worker as well as those who are in a high risk category due to age or underlying health conditions. Testing is also available for those who live in the same residence as someone who is in one of the priority categories. Tests are done from your vehicle using nasal pharyngeal swabs to detect recent infection. In other COVID-19 news, due to a decrease in demand, new hours for the King’s Daughters’ Health COVID-19 Hotline are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Anyone with COVID-19 concerns on Saturdays and Sundays may call the KDH Convenient Care Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 812-273-5372.
