Michigan Department Of Health and Human Services Revising COVID-19 Reporting

Changes are being made to how the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reports COVID-19 cases in the state. Starting today, they will no longer give updates of new cases by county, and instead will offer a map illustrating case density by county. Cumulative cases and deaths will still be broken down county-by-county, however. The reporting time is also moving an hour later in the day from 2 to 3 p.m., as there have been several times in the past week where the release of the numbers has been delayed. Health officials add information regarding the pandemic is changing rapidly, and remind Michiganders the most recent information can be found at Michigan.gov/coronavirus and at CDC.gov/coronavirus.
