FLOYD COUNTY — Southern Indiana health officials said people should get tested for HIV and Hepatitis C if they attended a wrestling event last Sunday in New Albany.

The Floyd County Health Department said those at the "Welcome to the Wreckroom" event may have been exposed to blood or bodily fluids.

The News and Tribune reported that a complaint from someone who attended the match triggered the warning.

The event's co-promoter, John Glenn, said wrestlers are tested regularly.
