1. Stay Careful, Michigan: Testing

    Mark Rivett posted July 15, 2020

    Nobody is immune to COVID-19, and we cannot afford to go backward.

    • Moving too fast without the tests we need could put Michigan at risk of a second wave of infections.
    • At one time, testing was limited.
    • Now, expanded testing is available across the state as we continue to reopen.
    • The State of Michigan will keep working to expand testing even further and require people who test positive to self-isolate.
      • The most important thing right now is to listen to the experts and follow medical science.
    • To avoid bringing COVID-19 home, it is especially important you get tested if:
      • You feel sick;
      • You have been in close contact with someone who is sick or has symptoms; or,
      • If you work outside the home.
    • To get tested:
      • Call the COVID Hotline at 888-535-6136 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and press 1 to be connected to an operator who can help you find a nearby location and schedule an appointment; or,
      • Visit Michigan.gov/CoronavirusTest to find testing locations near you and schedule an appointment.
    • There are many locations where you can get tested at no cost to you.
