Testing for Children Ages 5+

Prior to bringing a young child for testing, parents and guardians are encouraged to watch the video with their child about the testing process to prepare them for the testing procedure.

Learn more on how to support your child during the testing procedure with this video from Mayo Clinic.

The Fishers Health Department has lowered the age for testing as it anticipates a stronger demand for testing due to the return to in-person learning by Hamilton Southeastern School District on September 8 for grades Pre-K through fourth.

A message from Chief Medical Director, Dr. Indy Lane regarding antibody/antigen testing:

The Fishers Health Department currently does not administer antibody tests for COVID-19 virus (SARS-COV-2), also known as serological tests. These tests detect antibodies to the COVID-19 virus in an individual’s blood. Antibody testing cannot be used to diagnose or rule out a COVID-19 infection. A positive COVID-19 antibody test means there are antibodies to COVID-19 in an individual’s blood and indicates exposure to the virus even in asymptomatic people. Currently, we are uncertain if a positive antibody test provides protection against COVID-19 or prevents reinfection. At this time, the value of antibody testing is limited and we do not fully understand how the tests can be used to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections. Everyone, regardless of their antibody status, should follow the recommended CDC guidelines such as covering the nose and mouth with a mask when in public or around symptomatic people, social distancing, and frequent handwashing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our communities.

The City of Fishers’ goal is to manage precautions and encourage the community to take personal responsibility and reduce the impact to populations who are at a higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness. The CDC has identified older populations are at a higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.

The City’s number one priority is the continued transparency and safety of our residents and our employees. The City of Fishers has compiled a list of frequently asked questions for residents, businesses, and stakeholders.
