Dearborn residents have a new COVID-19 testing area.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Tuesday (April 21) announced a partnership with CVS Health to offer drive-through Rapid COVID-19 Testing in Dearborn in the parking lot of the Henry Ford Centennial Library, 16301 Michigan Ave. The tests are at no cost to eligible Michiganders, and a doctor’s referral is not required.

The site will test 500-750 residents daily who are experiencing certain COVID-19-related symptoms and risk factors as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Drive-through testing is available by appointment seven days a week. Residents must be pre-screened and register for a test at cvs.com/minuteclinic/covid-19-testing.

“We need COVID-19 testing now more than ever to get an accurate count of infections to help us continue flattening the curve of this unprecedented pandemic in every corner of our state,” Gov. Whitmer said in a statement. “Our partnership with CVS Health is a significant step toward speeding up Michigan’s recovery and getting Michiganders back to a sense of normalcy in their daily lives.”
