Just a few days after being selected by the Indiana Department of Health and the Washington County Health Department, Salem High School has been canceled as a Covid-19 testing site due to public outcry.
“Due to numerous complaints made to the State by community members, the ISDH strike team has canceled the testing for next week at the Salem High School,” according to a statement released to the school today through the local health department.
“This event will be rescheduled once the ISDH can find another location to host the testing. We will send this information out once it becomes available to us,” according to the health department.
Salem Schools Superintendent Jon Action said the ISDH and the Washington County Health Department were looking for facilities to be a possible location for an emergency site due to Covid-19 in the spring.
