Covid 19 Testing Sites in Washtenaw County

With an uptick in Covid-19 cases in Michigan, testing for Covid is an important component to limiting the spread as families travel and visit others.

The government will now mail four Covid test kits to your home. Request them online at
covidtests.gov or special.usps.com/testkits.

It is now recommended that for the greatest protection against Covid-19, people should wear N95 masks.  Free N95 masks should be distributed to local pharmacies in early February. Call your local pharmacy in Washtenaw County to check for availability.

Per the Health Department of Washtenaw County , the following are updated Covid-19 testing sites in Washtenaw County (Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Chelsea, Dexter, & Milan).
