The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is working closely with healthcare providers, local public health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to actively monitor any potential cases of Novel Coronavirus 2019 in Michigan.
Stay up to date on COVID-19 by visiting https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/ and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
Research shows that masks can greatly reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19, especially when approximately 40% of those who have COVID-19 may be asymptomatic. We can only contain the virus and keep Michigan open if everyone stays careful and masks up when they leave home, whether they feel sick or not.
