McLaren Health Care continues to provide the community with increasingly convenient access to battle community spread of COVID-19, as all McLaren CareNow at Walgreens locations are now part of the federal Test to Treat Program. The program provides direct, express access to COVID-19 antiviral medication for those most at risk for severe complications from the virus.

“We continue to evolve the ways in which we can help our communities as the virus and our circumstances evolve,” said Deborah Conlon, MSN, FNP-BC, vice president of retail clinic operations at McLaren Health Management Group. “Being part of this program allows us to more efficiently and effectively treat patients in addition to the high-speed and high-quality testing service they have come to expect.”

The federal Test to Treat program was launched by the Biden-Harris administration in March 2022 to provide faster, easier access to lifesaving COVID-19 treatments. Eligible patients can be tested and treated in one visit at locations throughout the country, which now include 13 McLaren CareNow at Walgreens locations throughout Michigan and Ohio. Local McLaren CareNow clinics are located at 410 E. Jolly Road in Lansing, and 2131 W. Grand River Ave. in Okemos.
