INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Drive-through COVID-19 testing sites have been established at several locations throughout the state. The Indiana State Department of Health says the clinics will be available for healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers showing symptoms of the disease.

The clinics will take place this week, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The ISDH says participants should bring state-issued identification and documentation of place of employment.

The clinics will be held at the following locations:
