Here we are tracking the state of Michigan’s COVID-19 data for nursing homes, also referred to as long term care facilities.

DATA NOTES: Michigan’s Long-Term Care data collection recently underwent a transition as MDHHS enhanced its data collection process to improve accuracy, timeliness, and to align with new guidance from the federal Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Additional nursing facility data will be available once the it has been appropriately validated.

In the reporting period between October 13, 2020 - October 20, 2020, 97 percent of skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) in Michigan reported data to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (note: new facilities are included in the following tables but do not have reporting capabilities at this time). Facilities that have completed partial reports are included in this figure. Data will be updated daily, Monday- Friday.

As of October 20, the data below represents a cumulative total of confirmed COVID-19 resident cases, cumulative  total of suspected and confirmed resident deaths, cumulative total of confirmed COVID-19 staff cases, and cumulative total of suspected and confirmed staff deaths reported by SNFs in Michigan since January 1, 2020. Case numbers are provisional and may change as facilities correct or add data. The cumulative data under the new reporting system includes cases from January 1, 2020 through October 20, 2020.
