Baraga County – The Western Upper Peninsula Health Department announces that it has partnered with the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC), Michigan’s State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) and the Michigan National Guard (MING) to provide a free community wide COVID-19 test site. The event will be held this Friday, June 19, 2020, from 11 am to 5 pm, at the Niiwin Akeaa Center parking lot, located at 111 Beartown Road in Baraga, behind the Ojibwa Casino.

“This will be a great opportunity for the entire community to access testing at no charge,” said Kate Beer, Health Officer at WUPHD. “We have been very fortunate to be able to work with these partners to bring this event to our area.”

The drive thru testing is available to anyone age 18 and over and no prior doctor visit or appointment is necessary. Participants must bring a driver’s license or a photo I.D. to register.
