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. 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.
