Temporary closure of Franciscan Health Munster COVID-19 test site extended due to extreme cold

The weather-related closure of the outpatient COVID-19 test site at Franciscan Health Munster, which began Monday, has been extended through Friday, Feb. 12, due to continued extreme cold temperatures.

Because the test site is outdoors under a tent, hospital officials decided to temporarily close the site for patient and staff safety. Patients who have tests scheduled during the affected dates should call to reschedule or go to coronavirus.in.gov to find an alternative testing site.
