Munson Healthcare COVID-19 Tracker

At the onset of the pandemic, Munson Healthcare reported information specific to patients tested or treated at a Munson Healthcare facility. Now that testing is more widely available throughout northern Michigan, we have updated our report to reflect the same data reported by the State of Michigan. The data below summarizes COVID-19 testing and cases across all of northern Michigan.

We hope this information will be helpful to you in understanding the impact of this pandemic on our region. New data is published Monday - Friday, excluding holidays.

Please note that local health departments report COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths based on an individual’s county of residence, not where an individual may have been treated. Not all confirmed cases or deaths occurred at a Munson Healthcare facility.

Thank you for doing your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in northern Michigan.
