List of Michigan Libraries with Free at Home COVID-19 Tests
Here is a list of libraries in Michigan that have free COVID-19 test kits.
Free at-home COVID-19 testing kits were sent to libraries across the state of Michigan. The move is part of a partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Michigan Library Association.
The move is part of a pilot project with the goal of providing more testing resources to areas that are underserved. Nearly 5,500 test kits were shipped to 18 libraries in Calhoun, Clare, Newaygo, Oceana, and Saginaw counties and the City of Detroit.
Each site received 300 COVID-19 at-home test kits that each contained one test. Additional kits will be shipped to these sites as needed and more libraries will be added to the distribution in the coming weeks, according to MDHHS.
The initial distribution is expected to help MDHHS decide on its approach to sustaining the project within the partnership with the Michigan Library Association.
Since tests are limited at the locations, they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Individuals can take one kit per person, up to five per household. More kits are expected to be shipped to each of the libraries as needed.
