INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (WEHT) Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is warning Hoosiers of scammers taking advantage of the scarcity of COVID-19 tests by falsely claiming to be able to provide testing.
There are currently no tests that can be self-administered at home to find out whether someone has COVID-19.
The only tests currently available in Indiana require a doctor’s order and specimen collection done by a medical professional. At this time, there is no FDA-approved blood test to determine whether someone has COVID-19.
Because conditions are constantly changing regarding the availability of testing and decisions about who qualifies, Hoosiers should keep up with the latest information by consulting credible sources.
The latest information about COVID-19 can be found at coronavirus.in.gov.
