Parkview Warsaw will be opening up a testing site starting this coming Monday.

Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer spoke about the testing during Wednesday’s weekly press conference, saying that the CARES Act funding is helping out with that. It will be similar to the testing that has been going on at the three MedStat locations in the county, which is the PCR test. Parkview’s testing site will be open from 8:30 AM to 5 PM during the week.

The free state testing site at Central Park is expected to close this Saturday, however Thallemer mentioned that the city is trying to get the state to keep the site here a bit longer.
