MDHHS Expands COVID Test-kit Partnership With Libraries

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has expanded its efforts to provide free, at-home testing kits to underserved areas of the state by providing test kits to additional libraries for a total of more than 150 locations participating in the program. 

"This partnership is just one more tool to keep our communities safe," said Dr. Natasha Bagdasarian, Michigan's chief medical executive. "Testing has become extremely convenient with many locations and the increased availability of over-the-counter tests." 

More than 24,000 kits have been shipped to more than 150 library outlets. Test kits are sent monthly to each location and are available to residents on a first-come, first-served basis. Households are eligible to receive up to five (5) free at-home test kits from participating library partners while supplies last. Click here to view all libraries currently participating in Michigan.
