Rapid Tests Available
Due to the current volume of requests, we are prioritizing tests ages 5 -18 years old. Other requests are processed in the order in which they are received, and may take up to 24 hours for scheduling. Scheduling may be an additional 24 hours or more due to high demand. We currently have SAME DAY or NEXT DAY self-scheduling options for PCR tests (see below).
Individuals who are contacts or symptomatic may ask about their qualification for a rapid test at the testing site if scheduling through the “All Hoosiers” link. Fishers residents and students of Fishers schools can use the “Fishers Residents & Schools” link for PCR testing with a slightly faster turn-around time.
If you need access to testing for travel purposes, the following providers guarantee turnaround times for travel:

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.
