The state of Michigan is asking anyone who is traveling back to the state from a spring break trip to get tested for COVID-19, as the state sees surging cases.

The state is offering 37 pop-up sites located throughout Michigan as part of the special testing program. Students and families traveling across Michigan, to other states or out of the country risk being exposed to and carrying COVID-19 with them. This in turn could fuel outbreaks within their households and the communities where they live or visit.
