Charlotte will pilot new testing program
Everyone enrolled receives one kit containing two tests.
CHARLOTTE, Mich. (WILX) - Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is launching a new COVID-19 testing program for schools, and it’s kicking off in Charlotte.
Charlotte is the state’s first pilot school district for “MI Backpack Home Tests.”
The program gives take-home COVID-19 test kits to students, parents, and teachers as a means of encouraging at-home testing. Everyone enrolled receives one kit containing two tests.
Gov. Whitmer says the initiative allows for the state to protect school personnel and families in a more cohesive way.
