Individuals MUST be symptomatic, be a close contact of a positive case, or a symptomatic resident of congregate living settings to be eligible for testing.  You will go to the portal and self-report your symptoms using the online screening tool.  If you qualify, an option will appear to register for an appointment date and time. 

 

There is NO charge for testing! However, if you do have private health care insurance, you are asked to bring that to the testing site. 

People can expect to get the results within 48 hours.  Optum will send a text or email to the patient if the test is negative.  A phone call will be given if there is a positive test results.

Dubois County Health Department will not be involved with the direct operations of OptumServe’s clinics.  Dubois County Health Department will receive the positive cases results of Dubois County residents and will continue to work with the ISDH and local officials to ensure that contacts of the patients are identified and monitored.
