Livonia’s innovative Together Livonia Cares program expanded this week to provide COVID-19 testing for those who live and work in the City’s Senior Housing facilities. Livonia Firefighters are visiting residents in all four of our sites – McNamara Towers I and II, Newburgh Village and Silver Village – offering testing, education and a supply of personal protective equipment. McNamara Towers I and II residents were the first to be tested. We are happy to report that there were no positive COVID-19 results for the residents that were tested.
Once all four Livonia Housing Commission buildings are completed, the testing, PPE and education will be offered at all senior living sites in Livonia, which will include 1,000 residents.
Please see the update from Mayor Brosnan, Fire Chief Dave Heavener and City Planning and Economic Development Director Mark Taormina.

Mayor Maureen Miller Brosnan calls on Federal lawmakers to direct relief funding to cities hit hardest by the crisis. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) formula, which was used to distribute federal relief funds, wasn’t designed to help in a pandemic and didn’t take into account how hard the cities were impacted. Livonia received the least amount of any city receiving funds in Wayne County despite being the second hardest hit by COVID-19 in the county.
If you wish to voice your support for our City, please contact our Congressional representatives and ask them to ensure Livonia gets its fair share of coronavirus relief funding.
