Michigan state health officials order coronavirus testing for vulnerable workers

A new emergency order requires COVID-19 testing for agriculture, migrant, and food processing workers in Michigan. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services—which has identified 11 COVID-19 outbreaks at food processing plants and farms—says this step is crucial to protecting workers who are particularly at risk and to combat the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on Latinx communities. The order calls for employers and housing operators to create a testing plan including baseline as well as ongoing testing. #covid-19 #racialequity
