Nov. 16, 2020

In a unified effort to make COVID-19 testing more accessible in the region, the Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department, Honu Labs, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians are joining forces to offer no-cost, drive-thru COVID-19 testing to the public, Wednesday, November 18th, at the Dune Climb in Glen Arbor.

Testing will take place in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore's Dune Climb Parking Lot, 6748 South Dune Highway, Glen Arbor, from 10:30am to 3pm on Wednesday.

What you need to know:

• Testing is available to any Michigan resident, regardless of symptoms. In order to be tested you must present a driver’s license or state ID.     

• A doctor’s order is not needed.

• Tests are for diagnostic purposes (this is not an antibody test) and will be sent to a laboratory to determine results.

• The test is performed by naso-pharyngeal swab

• Results will be available via online portal, and any individual with a positive test result will be contacted by their local health department.

Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department and partners ask that you use this QR code or preregister for testing, to reduce wait times at the testing event and promote quicker turnaround of results.
