Michigan residents are encouraged to get tested two to three days before travel and two to three days after their return to the state of Michigan. Individuals who test positive prior to their trips should not travel and people testing positive once they return should quarantine, state health officials advised.

Those who don't get tested upon their return should consider staying home and self-quarantining for 10 days, the state said in a Friday statement.

The 37 spring break testing locations will pop up for a single day at sites across the state between April 3 and April 15, with Metro Detroit locations concentrated between April 3-7.
