Whitmer: People can get virus test without doctor's note
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has ordered that people who leave their home for work or those who have coronavirus symptoms can be tested without needing a doctor's note. Tuesday's move is the latest bid to expand COVID-19 testing, which is seen as a critical to slowing the virus. Previously, most people needed an order from a health care provider, though a site at the old state fairgrounds in Detroit provides tests to anyone, even without a note or symptoms. Also Tuesday, a Detroit-area hospital network said it had under 100 COVID-19 patients for the first time in more than two months.
