City of Detroit offering to test essential workers for COVID-19
Mayor Mike Duggan says the state fairgrounds drive-thru testing site has more capacity now that surrounding counties have expanded their own testing.
Duggan says he wants Detroit to be the first city in America to assure employers that their essential workers are not infected.
“I want every business in the city of Detroit to know that if you have to be open because you’re essential that we will test all of your employees,” says Duggan.
Duggan says the city is prioritizing food handling businesses.
