DHD#10 Announces Changes to Coronavirus Updates

The District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) announced Friday that they are transitioning away from providing daily and weekly data on coronavirus cases and deaths due to the continual decrease in numbers. They will instead be using the reporting tools from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).

“We understand that our transition away from reporting local COVID-19 data may be frustrating to some but given the fact that the state and CDC are already providing pertinent data to help individuals make informed decisions, we can now look to them to guide us,” stated Kevin Hughes, DHD#10 Health Officer. “All local COVID-19 resources and prevention measures will now transfer into our normal public health workflow and our staff will get back to the standard practices we have always provided.”

DHD#10’s website will no longer display the coronavirus data dashboard or local coronavirus data. Instead, there will be a link to the CDC’s and MDHH’s communication tools that update weekly.

They will continue to pass along important guidance and information as the situation evolves and if cases begin to surge again.

Additionally, the department will continue to provide vaccines, KN95 masks, and host testing clinics throughout the 10-county jurisdiction.
