BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – InterHealth in Benton Harbor has made a change to their testing procedures, allowing anyone to get tested for COVID-19 without a doctor’s recommendation. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services identified the city as one of the areas in need of more testing.
Experts say essential workers of any kind should consider getting tested.
“Health care providers, all first responders, whether you’re symptomatic or not, um you know, essential workers, um so people that um may not have any symptoms are being able to get tested,” said
Due to additional equipment provided by the state, people can expect results 24 to 36 hours after being tested.
