When COVID-19 first started affecting the Tri-State, tests were very hard to come by. That is beginning to change, and more of us are getting tested. I have thought about getting tested, just to see what the results are, but without symptoms or contact with someone that has COVID-19, that wasn't possible. Knowing myself, I would want to pop in and be tested every week, you know, just to be sure.

Beginning Monday, July 6, 2020, residents that live and work in Evansville will have the opportunity to get tested, free of charge. This service is a partnership between Mayor Winnecke, the Vanderburgh County Health Department, and the Indiana Department of Health.

Mayor Winnecke said, "This site will provide another option for our residents to have access to free testing, regardless of symptoms or exposure."
