Tracking COVID-19 cases, deaths in Michigan long term care facilities, nursing homes
Here we are tracking the state of Michigan’s COVID-19 data for nursing homes, also referred to as long term care facilities. All long-term care facilities additionally have an obligation to report COVID-positive residents and/or staff to their Local Health Department. Skilled Nursing Facilities are facilities licensed to provide organized nursing care and medical treatment to 7 or more unrelated individuals suffering or recovering from illness, injury, or infirmity. This data set includes all licensed nursing facilities with the exception of hospice residences licensed as nursing homes. Adult Foster Care Facilities and Homes for the Aged provide care to persons not needing the 24 hour nursing care found in nursing facilities, yet need monitoring and assistance with activities of daily living.
U-M’s Mcity releases ’80s themed music video to mark fifth anniversary
ANN ARBOR – How come no one is talking about Mcity’s new music video? “We Built Mcity” was released on Dec. 31 and is a spinoff of Starship’s hit song “We Built This City.”The private-public autonomous vehicle technology testing facility on University of Michigan’s North Campus is closed to the public. Behind its walls lies a driverless vehicle testing track which features a mock city, intersections and highways. In the video, Mcity’s staff -- including director Huei Peng -- are seen dancing and lip-syncing along to the custom song whose lyrics center around the facility’s research and mission.
