FISHERS — The Fishers Health Department is launching a second COVID-19 testing site that will be dedicated to prioritizing testing for school-related exposures.

The testing will be for Hamilton Southeastern Schools and private schools in Fishers.

The health department said the site will open Monday, Nov. 23 for testing Monday through Saturday. Alternative hours will be in place for Thanksgiving week.

As the number of COVID-19 cases has spiked over the last several weeks, the Fishers Health Department has been working with suppliers to dedicate additional testing for schools. Students, teachers, and staff of all Fishers-based schools, including Noblesville-based Durbin Elementary, will receive priority testing at this location. This includes testing for any same-household individuals of those with a positive case or confirmed close contact.

Residents may make an appointment online and clicking "testing for Fishers residents."

The Fishers Health Department secondary testing site is located at 8933 Technology Drive. Appointment may be scheduled beginning Nov. 23.

Hours of operating for the secondary site are: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

During Thanksgiving Week the site will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday and Wednesday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
