Wakefield — The Michigan State Police Wakefield Post will be the site of a COVID-19 testing station on Thursday. The testing will be provided through a coordinated effort of the Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center and the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department, and is available to all.
Those who wish to be tested must pre-register in advance and schedule an appointment between 9:15 a.m. and 1 p.m. Registration and appointments are on a first-come first-served basis.
The process of pre-registering requires answering a few screening questions and providing some personal information including consent for treatment and the color, make, and model of the vehicle they’ll be in “for identification purposes.” Participants must remain in their vehicle for the duration of their appointment, according to an MSP press release.
The test being administered is the the COVID-19 nasal cavity swab, which, according to the release, only takes a few minutes to complete and test results are received in about a week.
To make an appointment, call 844-947-4854.
