Changing COVID Data Updates

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services only provides updated COVID data on Tuesdays. Updates were previously released every Wednesday, but the state decided to change the day “to accommodate an anticipated change in the CDC’s data cadence.”

This data now combines confirmed and probable cases and deaths.

Prior to April 2022, confirmed and probable statistics were separated throughout the pandemic. Due to this significant change in state data reporting, our previous COVID charts and graphs will no longer be updated.

MDHHS also no longer reports the subset of deaths identified through the review of vital records.
