The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is opening two additional Neighborhood Testing Sites, one in Detroit and one in Muskegon, bringing the total number of community testing sites to 19. That and more in today’s Wayne County Report for September 15, 2020.
Testing is free and locations were chosen in part to help address racial and ethnic disparities that had existed prior to the pandemic and were exacerbated by the virus. Testing sites are offering saliva tests, which are less invasive than nasal swabs and may make the testing process more tolerable for some people.
Meanwhile, in the countywide health data totals for September 14, 2020, Taylor had just one new confirmed case of COVID-19, upping its overall total to 998. There were no new deaths; that number remains at 76.
