HAPPENING ACROSS STATE GOVERNMENT
- A new Neighborhood Testing Site in Warren opens today, bringing the total number of community sites offering COVID-19 testing to 22. MDHHS is working with trusted community partners including churches, community colleges and nonprofit organizations to launch the sites.
“More than 34,000 Michiganders have been tested at one of the Neighborhood Testing Sites since they opened in August, said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy of health at MDHHS. “Locations were chosen in part to help address racial and ethnic disparities that existed prior to the pandemic and were exacerbated by the virus. These sites have proven to be a valuable resource for communities across the state to ensure free testing is available to all Michigan residents.”
- MDHHS also showed Michiganders the best way to cover your face to protect others and yourself from the spread of COVID-19.
