Detroit Expands Free Testing to Tri-County Area Residents

Posted: 05/29/2020

Mayor Mike Duggan recently announced that the city will now provide COVID-19 testing to any resident of the tri-county area (Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb) for free at the State Fairgrounds. 

At a recent Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC) event, Denise Fair, Chief Public Health Officer for the City of Detroit clarified two key points:

  • Anyone that wants to get tested at the fairgrounds MUST schedule an appointment. People just showing up at the fairgrounds without an appointment will be turned away.
  • Detroiters without safe or reliable transportation can schedule a $2 cab ride to and from the fairgrounds. Partnerships with cab services in the city have made this possible. People that can't provide the $2 will still be able to get a ride. 
  • Anyone that wants an appointment to get tested and/or a ride should call 313-230-0505 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Monday through Sunday. Click here to learn more.
