Note:
 These are laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19. Date is by when Public Health was notified through the Michigan Disease Surveillance System. Sometimes notification, known as the referral date, occurs before the test result comes back.

 Data Considerations
  • Positive case counts may change if a case is reassigned to another county or state

  • Persons Under Investigation (PUI), Negative results, and Test Results Pending are no longer able to be maintained. With the addition of private lab testing, it is no longer possible to accurately record the number of tests submitted for processing. Positive lab results will be updated here daily.

  • Data source is the Michigan Disease Surveillance System
