The Lake County Health Department has been receiving complaints from parents of children attending schools within our jurisdiction concerning the quarantining of unmasked close contact children who have been exposed to children infected with the COVID virus.
Free COVID-19 testing at Polk Elementary School in Lake Station each Tuesday though Saturday from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
Due to increase of COVID cases, starting on Sept. 7th, 2021, immunizations will be administered by appointment only.
The Lake County Health Department supports the current CDC and Indiana Department of Health COVID control guidelines. We strongly recommend that all schools follow the masking, contact tracing and quarantining practices described in the guidelines.
