(SEYMOUR) - One county health official is surprised by how few people have taken advantage of the weekly HIV testing clinics set up in Seymour.

Public Health Coordinator Lin Montgomery says only nine people showed up for free testing at a clinic conducted in late May and a second this month at the The Alley church and soup kitchen in Seymour.

She was expecting more individuals to be interested in finding out their HIV status, considering the outbreak of the virus in southeastern Indiana that reached 166 cases this past week.
