*Use caution when interpreting case count information.
*The dashboard will be updated daily by 4:30 p.m., with COVID-19 figures included as of 2:00 p.m.
*Confirmed cases only include people who test positive for COVID-19.
*For zip codes, only zip codes with 1 or more case is shown. For zip codes with 1-4 cases, <5 will be reported as to protect potentially identifiable information. For counties with 5 or more cases, the actual number of cases is shown.
*Numerous agencies around the State of Michigan enter data into the COVID-19 tracking system and counts may differ from the State of Michigan Website.
*The true number of COVID-19 cases is likely higher than we know.
*Probable cases of COVID-19 are defined as individuals who have been directly linked, epidemiologically, to a confirmed case and have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, but who were not tested. Given that a positive COVID-19 test result would not change the measures taken by public health, since a probable COVID-19 case would already be quarantined when symptoms appear, these cases are labeled as probable instead of confirmed. Probable cases are treated as if they were a positive laboratory confirmed case and the actions taken are the same as for a confirmed case. This includes: self-isolation, active contact tracing and daily follow-up by DHD2’s communicable disease team.
*Given the national shortage of testing supplies, not everyone with COVID-19 symptoms will receive a test. In general, tests are given to people who meet priority criteria.
*Some people who have COVID-19 will not show symptoms and therefore will not be tested.
*The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) defines recovered as an individual who, within the Michigan Disease Surveillance System, has gone 30 days from onset of their symptoms or 30 days from testing positive with COVID-19 and has not died. DHD2 has aligned their criteria for recovered individuals with the State’s and will report cases recovered as they meet this definition. DHD2’s first case was on March 25, 2020.
*Please note: As the number cases grow, MDHHS is only able to update their website once per day. We may report a local case before the state is able to include it in their counts. Given that it is our mission to ensure the health of our communities, we feel that it is important to share these results quickly whenever possible.
*DHD2 is working diligently with community partners to expand testing capacity, to track COVID-19 in our region, and to quickly share information as we learn more.
