IDOH announces new limitations for rapid COVID-19 tests at state sites
The Indiana Department of Health will limit rapid antigen COVID-19 testing at state sites to Hoosiers 18 and younger and symptomatic Hoosiers 50 and older. The state announced the change Tuesday as it deals with a nationwide shortage of rapid tests – but other testing is still available.
IDOH said in a press release the limitations are designed to help keep students in school and identify at-risk Hoosiers for antibody treatments within the prescribed window.
Indiana is only guaranteed 11,000 rapid tests per week, but uses about 50,000 at testing sites across the state.
