Michigan Medicine Launches New In-House Coronavirus Testing

Michigan Medicine

More people will now be able to get tested for the coronavirus at the University of Michigan Health System.

Michigan Medicine announced Thursday it is now conducting its own in-house tests for COVID-19.

The health system had previously been sending its test kits to a lab operated by the state’s Department of Health and Human Services.

Michigan Medicine officials say this new option will allow more people to get tested and to get their results back faster.
