Kosciusko County COVID-19 Testing Site Moving And Further Reducing Hours

Bowen Center announced that beginning Monday, April 4 it will move its COVID-19 testing site in Warsaw and further reduce operating hours due to a sustained decrease in testing.

The site will move from the Kosciusko County Fairgrounds to the Central Park Pavilion, 119 E. Canal St., and the operating hours will be cut to just one day per week: Monday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The testing site will be closed on the Monday before election day, May 2, and on Memorial Day, May 30.

The free, drive-up testing site started to see a decrease in tests administered in mid-January and has seen a steady decline since, according to a news release from the Bowen Center. Should demand increase, the Center will reevaluate and increase hours as warranted at the Central Park location.

English/Spanish language technicians are available to administer the tests which are free and available to anyone 2 years old and up. You do not need an appointment, a doctor’s referral, insurance or to be a resident of Kosciusko County. For more information, call 574-372-3517 or 574-372-2353.

The COVID-19 testing site opened in October 2020 and has been one of the highest volume state-sponsored test sites in Indiana, the news release states. The drive-through site is operated by Bowen Center and Bowen Health Clinic on behalf of the Indiana Department of Health and the Kosciusko County Health Department with assistance from the Northern Indiana Hispanic Health Coalition, Ivy Tech Community College – Warsaw, Kosciusko Community Hospital, WJ Carey Construction, the Kosciusko County Fair Board, Wildman Business Group and DM Trump Construction LLC.
