COVID-19 Testing

Testing allows the Health Division to monitor the virus in our community and keep us safe and open. We are working very closely with a local laboratory called Orchard Laboratories to provide COVID-19 testing to individuals that live and work in Oakland County. Orchard Laboratories uses Solv to help patients schedule visits, send helpful appointment reminders, and make checking in easier.
