Michigan lab reports 25% uptick in COVID-19 tests in past month

West Bloomfield, Mich.-based Orchard Laboratories has seen a 25 percent increase in demand for COVID-19 testing in the past month, with the delta variant's spread pushing positivity rates higher, the testing lab said Sept. 15.

Orchard said Michigan companies have been reaching out for guidance more often since President Joe Biden's Sept. 9 announcement that he would direct the U.S. Labor Department to require businesses with 100 or more employees to have their workers vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested weekly.

"Companies are scrambling to navigate the new rules and we are here to help," Orchard Laboratories President Sami Ahmad said.
