Free COVID-19 testing offered by the Allen County Department of Health will move to a new southwest location opening Tuesday, Sept. 28.
The free testing site will be located at 5750 Falls Dr. in Fort Wayne and will still offer both the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and rapid antigen COVID-19 tests to anyone regardless of age or symptoms. The Department is partnering with Parkview Health at the new site, with the health system providing several staff members to assist with testing while demand is high.
“Access to free testing continues to be an important tool in managing the spread of COVID-19,” said Mindy Waldron, department administrator. “We are grateful to have found the space to provide this resource to our community and for the partnership with Parkview staff.”
The final day for testing at the Department’s current site at 1230 Ruston Pass is Saturday, Sept. 25.
