Indiana residents of any age who wish to be tested for COVID-19 can do so, free of charge, at Harrison County’s drive-thru test site that will open tomorrow (Thursday) at the May & Joe Rhoads Memorial Pool, located at 2150 Poolside Drive, Corydon.
Testing will be done Tuesdays through Fridays, as well as the first three Saturdays of each month, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The site will also be open from 3 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The site will be closed on government holidays.
Online registration is the preferred method for making an appointment and can be done at https://scheduling.coronavirus.in.gov/Home/LocationSelection. If registration assistance is needed, individuals may call the Harrison County Health Dept. at 812-738-3237.
Walk-ins will be accepted; however, those persons must still be registered.

In cases of inclement weather, the testing site will be converted to a walk-thru test site.
The site is scheduled to be open through June 30.
Funding for this testing site is provided by the Indiana State Dept. of Health and local funding sources. The site is a partnership between the Harrison County Health Dept. and Harrison County Hospital.
