A program that delivers free rapid COVID tests for Michiganders living in zip codes most affected by the pandemic is temporarily on pause. The program is called Project Act. It is currently out of supplies but is hoping to restock later this month.

"By mid September, you'll see that back online, and I'm sure when it does come back online, that we will get the message out very broadly. And hopefully people will again take advantage of being able to get those resources delivered right to their door." said Joe Coyle is the Director of the Bureau of Infectious Disease Prevention at the state health department.
