We now have COVID-19 County Profiles that will be updated monthly to give you a snapshot of the cases in each county.

Weekly DHD#10 COVID-19 Heat Map

Below is a heat map of confirmed and probable positive COVID-19 cases within the District Health Department #10 region. Darker areas, such as red and orange, are associated with higher rates of positive cases while lighter areas, such as green and yellow are associated with lower rates of positive cases. This map shows rates per 10,000 people so if an area is red, it does not mean there are 243.9 positive cases in that area, but rather 2.439% of the population within that area has tested positive for COVID-19. Areas that are not highlighted with any color do not currently have positive cases. Please note: this heat map is updated weekly.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Public Health Advisory – As of June 10, 2020 for travelers and visitors to northern Michigan.

On July 29, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-160 amending Michigan’s Safe Start Order, thus prohibiting any indoor social gatherings of more than 10 people statewide. At the same time, the order also closes bars across the state, including in the Traverse City region and the Upper Peninsula. The Governor also issued Executive Order 2020-161 that requires safeguards to protect Michigan’s workers from COVID-19. Both are effective July 31, 2020.

What Is Considered A School Outbreak And Where Can I Find This Information? 

A COVID-19 school outbreak is defined as two or more laboratory-confirmed cases among students or staff of the same school building with onset of symptoms within a 14-day period. These cases are found to be linked to the same setting, during the same time period (e.g., same classroom, school event, school-based extracurricular activity, school transportation), but do not share a household, and were not identified as close contacts in any other setting other than school. 

You can find information about COVID-19 outbreaks associated with educational institutions, as reported by local health departments each week to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services here.

Why Doesn’t Public Health Publicize All COVID-19 Exposure Sites?

We have received many questions as to why DHD#10 publicizes some COVID-19 exposure sites, but not all. Below is an article that explains when it is appropriate to publicize  exposure sites and when it is not. Hopefully this will shed some light on what goes into making that decision.
