If you’re an Oakland County resident, you no longer need a prescription to get tested for COVID-19.
Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter says they’re preparing this week to open a drive-thru testing site in Novi that is designed to test around 250 people per day.
“We began out drive-thru testing in Pontiac, then we’ve now expanded it to Southfield, and this week on Friday, Novi,” Coulter said, speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950.
Beginning May 8, testing at the Novi Civic Center, on W. Ten Mile Rd. off Taff Rd., will run from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.
Coulter said the testing is open to first responders, health care workers, essential business employees — and any other Oakland County resident who has made an appointment.
“We want to make it accessible for people all over the county,” he said. “But you need to have a reservation, an appointment. You don’t need to have a doctor’s note, but you need to call our ‘Nurse on Call’ number.”
