Description

Washtenaw County Health Department is announcing plans with local health care providers and community partners to provide COVID-19 testing where it is most needed in our community. Testing has remained a huge challenge locally and across the state and country. Testing will now be offered at the following pop-up sites and ongoing testing sites in the 48197 and 48198 areas.

 

St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor hospital is directing its resources to address the social determinants of health that can affect COVID care, as part of its mission to be a transforming healing presence within the community.

Through this screening process, health care workers are able to conduct a needs assessment to ensure that participants have appropriate hand hygiene and cleaning supplies, the ability to self-isolate if needed, and be connected to further community resources to address specific needs such as access to food or transportation.

 

Community Testing in 48197/48198

No appointments, insurance, or prescriptions needed. Walk-up or drive-up. Bring your insurance card, if you have one.

 

Pop-up Testing

Testing will be provided on:

Sunday, May 24 from 11:00am - 7:00pm at Ypsilanti Township Civic Center (7200 S Huron River Dr, Ypsilanti, MI 48197)

 

Ongoing Testing

With support from Packard Health and a partnership with Ypsilanti Community Schools, ongoing testing is planned at Perry Early Learning Center, located at 550 Perry Street, Ypsilanti Monday - Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. Hours may be adjusted, depending on demand.

Ongoing, curbside testing is also available daily at the north entrance of St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor hospital, located at 5301 McAuley Drive, Ypsilanti, MI 48197. Call 1-833-247-1258 with questions.

 

Who Can Get Tested?

At both locations, COVID-19 screening is offered to anyone with at least one symptom, including: fever higher than 100 degrees, cough, shortness of breath, severe tiredness/fatigue, sore throat, muscle aches, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, runny nose/congestion, or decreased appetite.

If you have health insurance, please bring your card. Insurance is not required for testing. There should be no out-of-pocket fees for individuals needing testing. Many insurance providers have already waived copays for COVID-19 testing.
