Take ACTion

COVID-19 is still spreading throughout our communities. And even with vaccines becoming more widely available, we can’t let our guard down.

Every time you Avoid COVID-19 Today (ACT), you make an extraordinary impact. Hospital beds stay open for emergencies. Our healthcare heroes stay healthy so they’re here when you need them. Lives are saved, and our community is safer.

The sacrifice is small compared to the impact. We need you, northern Michigan. Are you in? Let’s continue to ACT by taking these steps to slow the spread:

Schedule the COVID-19 vaccine at your earliest opportunity


Keep your distance (6 or more feet) from people outside your immediate household


Wear your mask when you go out


Wash your hands frequently (or use hand sanitizer with 60% or more alcohol)


Follow your doctor’s trusted advice and get recommended appointments, screenings, and treatments to ensure you’re at your healthiest


Go above and beyond by sending a kind message to our patients or staff

Help Build Herd Immunity

Even with vaccines helping to build herd immunity, we can’t let our guard down yet. Until we have about 70% of our population vaccinated, we still need to be cautious and use all of our available tools.

How We're Keeping You Safe

Your health and safety mean more to you than ever before. We understand that more than anyone because the health and safety of our communities have always been our top priority at Munson Healthcare – long before COVID-19.

Our commitment to your health and safety has never changed. But it has evolved. Our doctors and caregivers are taking all the necessary precautions to keep you safe and prevent the spread of infection.

For Patients

Most patients in our hospitals are not allowed to have visitors, due to state-mandated visitor restrictions. These rules are helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But that doesn’t mean they can’t have our well wishes! Send a kind word to let our patients and help keep their spirits up!

For Healthcare Heroes

Are you interested in sending a caring message to the healthcare team? Our hardworking Munson Healthcare Heroes appreciate all your encouraging words. Send some gratitude their way!
