Michigan schools receive improved Covid-19 testing
LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) continues with their itinerary to offer a voluntary COVID-19 testing program which will provide weekly tests for Michigan teachers.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s goal is to enable all Michigan school districts the ability to offer an in-person learning option for students by March 1 by mitigating Covid-19 spread from teachers to students.
This COVID-19 rapid antigen testing program began today.
MDHHS is providing public and private Michigan schools the testing supplies for free.
Approximately 300 schools and 9,000 staff have signed up for testing so far.
