District Health Department #10 to Stop Publishing COVID-19 Exposure Sites
One local health department says they will no longer publish COVID-19 exposure sites within their footprint.
The District Health Department #10 covers 10 counties stretching from Missaukee County, all the way over to Oceana and Mason Counties.
They say now has Michigan’s numbers continue to rise people should treat everywhere as an exposure site.
“What we’re finding now is that based on the volume of cases that we have to deal with and the level of community spread that we’re seeing in the community,” says Kevin Hughes, health officer with DHD #10, “Individuals should expect that anytime they leave their home, engaging with others, there’s a potential increased risk of contracting COVID-19.”
Social distancing, hand washing and wearing a mask is more important than knowing where the virus was previously, according to the health department.
