“As the weather is getting warmer, it’s tempting for many not to practice social distancing but, coronavirus is still prevalent, said DABO Executive Director Rev. Horace Sheffield, III. “Testing remains vital to slowing the spread of COVID-19.”

Appointments are required for testing and can be made by calling CCIH at 833-360-2684 or Authority Health at 313-824-1000. All insurances are accepted, and no one will be denied testing. A valid ID is required.

“Perfecting Church’s commitment is to our community, said Bishop Marvin Winans. “We are honored and elated to be a COVID-19 testing site. It is vitally important that as many people as possible are tested so that we can control the spread of the coronavirus. We must keep ourselves, loved ones and others safe.”
