Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

The Health Department of Northwest Michigan is updating this site daily with the most current data available. The Health Department of Northwest Michigan 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. Please note the information is subject to change as the COVID-19 outbreak evolves.

The data dashboard is updated M-F by 5:30pm, with COVID-19 results included as of 3:00pm.

Note on Confirmed cases: Confirmed cases only include people who test positive for COVID-19.

Note on Probable cases: Probable cases are close contacts of confirmed cases who develop symptoms; they may become confirmed cases if they test positive.

Note on case counts: Use caution when interpreting case count information.

The true number of COVID-19 cases is likely higher than we know.
  • Given the national shortage of testing supplies, tests are only given to people who meet priority criteria where there are testing supplies available. Click here to view the criteria for testing.
  • Some people who have COVID-19 will be asymptomatic (not show symptoms) and therefore may not be tested.
  • Laboratories may be backlogged with tests, so results can take days. In some cases, sick individuals may recover before their case is added to local, state, and national counts.

Note on Total Contacts Traced: Total contacts traced represents the total, cumulative number of contacts traced from confirmed and probable cases. Active contacts traced represents the current number of contacts being traced from confirmed and probable cases.

Please note: As the number of cases grows, 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 it is important to share these results quickly whenever possible.
