Lake, Porter and LaPorte County Covid Test Sites

More NWIndiana Testing Sites Announced

    It’s been over a year, and the Covid Test Sites have changed. Many hospitals are no longer offering Covid Tests. The Current Covid Conditions are still challenging to many of us, especially when it comes to testing.
