    COVID-19 Update and Case Counts

    January 20, 2022

    The Health Department of Northwest Michigan has begun shifting away from universal contact tracing and case investigations to focus on high-priority community groups at risk for outbreak and severe disease and those in congregate settings. This move follows guidance from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services which updated these guidelines statewide.

    COVID-19 Update and Case Counts

    January 17, 2022

    Both the state and federal governments are stepping up measures to make COVID-19 home tests more readily available. At the state level, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Friday that those with health insurance may take advantage of a new federal rule that requires health insurers to cover the cost of eight over the counter COVID-19 home tests per month.?As insurers work to implement this new coverage, citizens should save receipts and boxes for COVID-19 tests purchased beginning on January 15, so they can submit them for future reimbursement, saving a family of four at least $384 a month.
