The Health Department of Northwest Michigan is actively involved in responding to this outbreak through calls with the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, maintaining communication with local medical providers to provide up to date information, monitoring all individuals based on risk exposure, and keeping our community informed.

COVID-19 Resources for Businesses

The following resources are meant to provide you with ideas, guidance, and information as you are creating a reopening plan that aligns with the Governor's latest executive order(s). Ultimately, employers must determine their own Response and Preparedness Plan that works with their business procedures and locations to keep their employees and clients safe.

If you still have questions, the CDC and MDHHS have also shared resources to help businesses put together a plan, and you can always call our Public Health Information Line at 1-800-386-5959.
