Change in COVID data updates
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is only providing updated COVID data on Tuesdays. The updates were previously released each Wednesday, but the state decided to switch the day “to accommodate an anticipated change in CDC data cadence.”
This data now combines confirmed and probable cases and deaths.
Before April 2022, confirmed and probable statistics were separated throughout the pandemic. Due to this significant change in the state’s data reporting, our previous COVID charts and graphs will no longer be updated.
MDHHS is also no longer reporting of the subset of deaths identified via Vital Records review.
