This report is created by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services from data self-reported by long-term care facilities into EMResource. Data is updated on an ongoing basis.
MDHHS has established a regional hub strategy to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19 within nursing facilities. COVID-19 Regional Hubs have established units dedicated to treating COVID-19-affected individuals and have established appropriate staffing levels and protocols to support this level of care.
These case counts reflect current cases of COVID-19 among facility residents reported to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Please note that the data will be posted daily, Monday-Friday. These totals do not include patients or staff who have recovered or passed away prior to this report. It is important to note that that the presence of COVID-19 at a facility is no way an indicator of a facility that isn’t following proper procedures. Several facilities are supporting local hospitals by accepting confirmed COVID-19 positive residents and going forward will be noted as such.
