  • CONTACT TRACING – Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and DHD#10 are experiencing an increase in COVID-19 cases, thus impacting our ability to respond as quickly as we would like. With each confirmed and probable case, there are often numerous close contacts that must also be identified and contacted, which falls to public health to complete. While DHD#10 is utilizing assistance from Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) TraceForce program, as well as staff within our agency, we have reached capacity and are unable to promptly investigate every case and contact trace. Priority is being given to school aged children, residents and employees of long-term care facilities, hospitals, schools, large group settings, and other higher-risk situations. DHD#10 is working very hard to reach out to individuals as quickly as possible, but we do not want you to wait to be contacted prior to taking action. For further guidance, click here.
