LANSING, MI-- A giant batch of at-home COVID tests are headed to Michiganders in the coming weeks.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) plan to ship 250,000 free tests to 50,000 households to help residents protect themselves from the omicron variant.

“I am grateful to the Rockefeller Foundation and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services for teaming up to deliver 250,000 tests to families in counties across the state. Earlier this month, we surged 300,000 tests to schools and other group settings too. Together, we can keep ourselves safe by testing, getting vaccinated and boosted, and wearing a mask in high-transmission areas,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Households in eligible ZIP codes in Berrien, Genesee, Kent, Macomb, Muskegon, Oakland, Saginaw and Wayne counties, and the City of Detroit are eligible to order one test kit per household from the Project Act website.

Each kit contains five tests and should arrive in Amazon packaging within one to two weeks of ordering.
