A new Neighborhood Testing Site in Benton Harbor opens today, bringing the total number of community sites offering COVID-19 testing to 20. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services says the location is Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church at 1105 East Main Street. It offers testing on Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm. Testing sites are offering saliva tests, which are less invasive than nasal swabs and may make the testing process more tolerable for some people.
Appointments are strongly encouraged and can be made either by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 888-535-6136 and selecting “1” or online. Walk-ins will be taken as space allows, but pre-registration is strongly advised. Online registration is available at Michigan.gov/CoronavirusTest. Results are available by phone, email, or by logging on to the website.
