COVID-19 testing to be offered Wednesday in Spalding Township

MARQUETTE — Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center, the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department, and the Marquette County Health Department have coordinated efforts to provide COVID-19 drive through testing in Powers on Wednesday.

The testing will take place from 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Central time at Spalding Township Hall, N15881 Pine St., Powers.

The opportunity to be tested is available to all community members from the convenience of their vehicle. Anyone wishing to be screened and preregistered for a COVID-19 test should call toll free number 844-947-4854 in advance to schedule an appointment.

A representative will ask a few screening questions and callers will be asked to provide some personal information, including their consent for treatment, to complete the preregistration process.

Once received, an appointment for the drive through test will be scheduled. Additionally, individuals will need to provide the color, make and model of their vehicle for identification purposes.

Drive through testing is only available to those who preregister. Individuals participating in drive through testing must remain in their vehicle during the appointment.

The COVID-19 test being used in this situation is a nasal cavity swab that only takes a few minutes to complete.

Currently, test results are received in about a week. Drive through testing will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, please call toll free number 844-947-4854.
