INDIANAPOLIS — The Marion County Public Health Department on Wednesday announced it is moving one of its three drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites to a new, indoor location.

Beginning Thursday, Dec. 3, the drive-thru testing on the south side will be offered weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Marion County Fairgrounds, 7300 E. Troy Ave., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The entrance is through Gate 4. An appointment is required for testing.

The new location replaces the testing site that was previously at the health department's South District Health Office.

The health department will eventually move all COVID-19 drive-thru testing to an indoor or covered location to protect workers and those seeking testing from winter weather conditions.
