LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Thousands of free COVID-19 tests are on their way to Michigan.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is partnering with the Rockefeller Foundation through Project Act to provide 300,000 COVID-19 tests to 60,000 households.
The tests are free-of-charge and will be delivered to at-risk communities.
Residents may request tests once per month in July and August. Households will receive one kit each month containing five tests.
“Testing remains both a critical and helpful tool in managing the spread of COVID-19 and ensuring our loved ones and neighbors don’t get infected,” said Natasha Bagdasarian, MDHHS chief medical executive.
Eligible individuals in vulnerable communities can order their free COVID-19 tests through AccessCovidTests.org.
