Local Health Organizations Expect Increased Vaccinations and Testing in the Future |  News

“We actually have been increasing the number of pop-up testing sites,” Wilkinson said. Wilkinson said a lot of businesses are asking where their employees can be tested. Testing across the state has increased to a daily average of 35,000 people, up from 13,000 in July.

For many local health departments, it’s either hold a vaccine clinic or mass testing site, not both, due to staffing and supply shortages. That’s where the state can help. “In terms of testing supplies, that may be a little bit more difficult,” Hall said.

“I think we’ll absolutely see an increase. We’ve already seen an increase before the mandate,” said Jason Wilkinson, director of covid testing for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Hall said the department is seeing an increase in vaccination and testing on the horizon.

The mandate will begin taking effect in about two and a half months. “I guess that’s the first question. Would at-home tests be permissible under this rule or whatever OSHA is gonna stipulate,” Wilkinson said.

For now, local health departments are waiting on more OSHA guidance, like with at-home tests. “Many of the health departments are, they’ve switched their focus to offering those vaccination events. And so, in those cases, we say is there a way we can help, we can augment those events by offering testing,” Wilkinson said.
