Nearly 40 COVID pop-up testing sites to open across Michigan

Health officials have been sounding the alarm about Spring Break for weeks now and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she’s particularly concerned about traveling to Florida.

April 3, 2021: Michigan coronavirus cases up to 692,206; Death toll now at 16,218

37 Pop-Up Testing sites will open across Michigan for people returning from a trip.

A full list of the testing sites can be seen below.

Cars stretched across the Stevenson High School Parking lot on Saturday. They were there to get tested for COVID.

Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services are urging Michiganders to get tested for COVID-19 upon returning from Spring Break to help slow the spread of the virus.

Amy Johnson and her family just got back from vacation.

“We were just down in Charleston, South Carolina for Spring Break and we just wanted to make sure we were safe before we get back in the world,” said Johnson.

She said the process was quick and easy, even getting the results back in just 30 minutes.

That’s something the Lawmaster family wanted to take advantage of. Vincent Lawmaster plays hockey.

“For the hockey association, if you’re 13 for the spring, you have to get tested,” said Lawmaster.

For Gretchen Young, showing up was necessary.

“My daughter at home tested positive two days ago,” Young said. “Yeah, they recommended we test the rest of the family to see where we stand.

Michiganders should also continue to wear a mask over their nose and mouth in public settings, avoid crowds and maintain social distancing of at least six feet from anyone they did not travel with.

It is also suggested that they carry hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol in case washing their hands with soap and water is not readily available.

Additionally, it is recommended that those who travel get tested three to five days after their trip and stay home and self-quarantine during this time period. If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
