Due to a recent decrease in COVID-19 cases in our population and the surrounding areas there will be a 1 month pause in routine COVID-19 testing, effective immediately. Prior to the end of this 1-month period, the need for routine testing will be re-evaluated and, if needed, will resume the week of March 22.

Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should get tested.

To get a COVID-19 test
Call GLT HHS at 269.397.1760 to talk to a nurse regarding your symptoms and/or schedule a COVID-19 test.
