Additional drive-thru COVID testing site opens in Brighton

The Livingston County Health Department (LCHD), LynxDx and the Legacy Center Sports Complex are offering an additional drive-thru COVID-19 testing site in Brighton.

Similar to the LynxDx site at 2|42 Community Center, this new site offers contactless saliva testing and is open to all Michigan residents with or without insurance. COVID-19 cases, including B117 variant cases, continue to rise in the county. Access to COVID-19 testing is an important tool in helping to identify cases and preventing further community spread of COVID-19.

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should immediately seek testing. If you were potentially exposed but do not have symptoms, LCHD recommends self-quarantine and waiting at least 5 or more days before testing. If you are in quarantine and develop symptoms, testing is recommended. Symptoms may take up to 14 days after exposure to appear, and individuals are considered contagious two days before symptoms appear.

Anyone getting tested should stay away from others until they get their results. Anyone with symptoms should stay home unless they are getting medical care or testing and limit all contact with others in their household.

Testing Site Information
The new testing site is located at the Legacy Center Sports Complex, 9299 Goble Rd., Brighton MI 48116. Testing is available at this location seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This site is drive-thru only. Tests will be contactless and saliva-based (no nasal swabs required). Results will be sent to your email or phone within 48 hours.

Who Can Get Tested?
Testing is open to all Michigan residents. You do not need to have symptoms to get tested. You do not need a doctor’s note or order to get tested. Pre-registration is required. Register for a test at https://lynxdx.health/register.
Testing is available with or without insurance. Please bring identification when you arrive for testing. If you have health insurance, please bring your card. There should be no out-of-pocket fees for individuals needing testing. Many insurance providers have already waived copays for COVID-19 testing. If you do not have insurance, testing staff will ask for your social security number to verify that you do not have insurance. Once you arrive on-site for testing, LynxDx will verify your identity and other information. They will then provide a self-testing kit to collect your saliva sample.
