Macomb County Health Department Announces New Drive-Through Testing Site for COVID-19
The Macomb County Health Department announced today that it will be providing COVID-19 drive-through testing for all Macomb County residents. Testing will be available on weekdays from 9:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. beginning the week of June 8. The presence of symptoms related to COVID-19 are not required for a person to be tested.
“Testing remains critical to our efforts to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19,” said Macomb County Health Department director/health officer William Ridella. “We encourage everyone to get tested.”
Testing is by appointment only and can be scheduled by calling the Health Department’s COVID-19 Helpline at 586-463-3750, 8:30 A.M. - 5:00 P.M., Monday-Friday. There is no cost for testing, and a prescription is not required. As part of the testing process, people must remain in their vehicles from the time they arrive until they depart.
The drive-through test site is located in the parking lot of the former Macomb County Juvenile Court Building located at 380 Rose St., Mount Clemens, MI 48043. A map is available here.
The COVID-19 test being used is a simple process that involves a gentle swipe of each nostril.
