GT County Health Department Opens New COVID-19 Testing Location

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 11, 2022

Due to a significant rise in regional COVID-19 cases, the Grand Traverse County Health Department is opening a new COVID-19 testing site at 1320 Airport Access Road on Wednesday, January 12. 

The Grand Traverse County Health Department is partnering with Cherry Capital Airport and the Michigan National Guard to offer rapid COVID-19 testing at the site. Testing will continue to be available for the immediate future at the new location. With the launch of the facility, Cherry Capital Airport will no longer be offering general COVID-19 testing to community members. A boarding pass will be required to get tested inside the airport.

The new testing site is free to use, and no doctor's order is needed. Patients need to bring a form of ID and wear a mask during drive-thru testing. Test results will be provided on-site. All ages are welcome, but appointments are required. This week, Airport Access Road appointments are available during the following windows: 

> Wednesday, January 12 from 1pm-4pm
> Thursday, January 13 from 9am-12pm and 1-4pm
> Friday, January 14 from 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm

Appointments can be scheduled through the Grand Traverse County Health Department online here.
