COVID Testing Extended at CK Newsome; More Funds Distributed


COVID testing has been extended at Evansville’s CK Newsome Center. 

In a release, the city said free testing at the site — administered by OptumServe — will be extended through November.

Operations will continue Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Those needing a test can register at lhi.care/covidtesting or by calling 888-634-1116.

Meantime, the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region has awarded a tenth round of allocations, granting nearly $245,000 to five of the seven nonprofit applicants.

As part of Round Ten, Joshua Academy Preschool was awarded more than $34,000 to provide family support, to purchase personal protective equipment and school supplies, and to establish a virtual learning platform.

A revised application for funding initiatives can be found at www.covidresponsefund.com.
