WARSAW, Ind. (WANE) – The Bowen Center has announces a change to its free COVID-19 drive-through testing site hours at the Kosciusko County Fair Grounds.
The center is decreasing its hours starting Monday to Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Bowen Center will also decrease the hours for its free Vaccination Registration Assistance Bilingual Hotline to help Hoosiers navigate the COVID-19 vaccination registration process. The hotline operators can assist callers in filling out the online form to schedule their vaccination Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The reduced hours are a positive reflection of the decrease in COVID-19 cases in the county and an increase in vaccinations. Bowen Center said it will continue to be responsive to the need and increase or decrease hours accordingly.
The testing site has administered more than 16,200 tests since it opened in October 2020, the press release said. English/Spanish language technicians are available to administer the tests which are free and available to anyone two-years-old and up.
