Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY) will Monday morning begin offering drive-through testing for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to Indianapolis area healthcare workers at the company’s Indianapolis headquarters. At this time, only active healthcare workers are eligible for the free test, and they must have a physician’s order requesting testing for COVID-19.
Lilly announced last week a partnership with the Indiana State Department of Health to offer testing of COVID-19 samples at a specialized facility at Lilly Research Laboratories. Now Lilly is expanding the service to the community by offering drive through testing.
“Lilly is committed to doing what we can to help fight COVID-19 in our community. By offering testing to our active healthcare workers, we hope to protect both them and the patients they serve,” said Dr. Daniel Skovronsky, Lilly’s chief scientific officer and president of Lilly Research Labs.
The group eligible for testing includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and allied healthcare professionals. You can access additional information about testing and registration by clicking here.
