In preparation for the upcoming total solar eclipse, the Marion County Public Health Department in Indianapolis is distributing eclipse glasses at various events throughout the city next week. The department’s director, Dr. Virginia A. Caine, emphasized the importance of protecting vision and ensuring the safety of first responders as traffic is expected to increase significantly during the eclipse.

The health department will provide safe-viewing information and distribute glasses at several events including Lafayette Square Mall on April 2, Washington Square Mall on April 4, and a special open house at the Marion County Public Health Department on April 6. During the open house on April 6, attendees can also receive services such as sports physicals, dental health screenings, blood pressure checks, vaccines for children, and flu and Covid-19 shots.

On the day of the eclipse, Indianapolis will experience totality where the moon will completely block out the sun. Public safety officials are anticipating heavy traffic and a large number of visitors coming to the city for this event. To help alleviate congestion, all offices and clinics of Marion County Public Health Department have been closed on April 8th.
