If you realize that you’ve been in contact with someone who is known to have COVID-19, or if you start to develop symptoms, such as a cough, a fever (>100.4F), or shortness of breath, you should stay in your home, separated from other family members, and you should call our office (269) 969-6123 for further advice. Our team at DayOne can help determine if you should stay home and take a specific over-the-counter medication, come in to be evaluated in our separate office suite for sick patients, seek care at an emergency department, or if you should proceed directly to an outpatient COVID-19 testing location.
There are several locations in Michigan offering drive-up COVID-19 testing, but they all require some pre-test screening. There are not enough tests in Michigan to test every person who shows symptoms of COVID-19, and right now the tests are being reserved for the people deemed to be the most at-risk, for example, the elderly, people with compromised immune systems, and people with existing serious heart or lung diseases.
- Health systems in Michigan currently offering drive-thru testing:
- Beaumont Hospitals (Metro Detroit, 8 locations). COVID-19 hotline: 800-592-4784
- Spectrum Health (West Michigan, 2 locations). COVID-19 hotline: 616-391-2380
