The COVID Long Term Care Facilities page was obtained from Michigan's COVID-19 data page: https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98163_98173-526911--,00.html.
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.
The data below represents a cumulative total of COVID-19 resident cases reported by SNFs in Michigan since January 1, 2020. Facilities that did not report data are listed as “--.” Case numbers are provisional and may change as facilities correct or add data.
In addition, residents and family members should understand that the presence of COVID-19 at a facility is no way an indicator of a facility that isn’t following proper procedures. Families should always feel free to ask questions of the facility where their loved one resides, and if not satisfied, contact their local ombudsman.
Some facilities have dedicated space to appropriately isolate and care for residents with COVID-19 and they may also be accepting individuals with COVID-19 that require nursing facility type care from the hospital. Additionally, some facilities are actively performing regular testing on all staff and residents, so counts may fluctuate as pending results become available.
