LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is collaborating with the Rockefeller Foundation to provide 300,000 COVID-19 tests to 60,000 households.
State health officials say these testing kits will be primarily made available to those in at-risk communities.
Households are able to get one kit each month. Each test kit comes with five tests that are free of charge.
Officials say you can request tests once a month in July and August.
Those who are eligible for tests can order them through a third-party website.
Once on the website, input your zip code to see if you live in a qualifying area. If you don’t have internet access, you can dial 211 for additional assistance.
These COVID-19 tests typically come within a week after you request them.
MDHHS is continuing to partner with libraries across the state to make sure Michiganders have access to free at-home COVID-19 tests.
