COP Response to COVID-19
Requiring Expanded Reporting of COVID-19 Cases in Schools
Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Director Robert Gordon issued an Emergency Order under MCL 333.2253 on October 6, 2020 requiring that school districts report COVID-19 cases publicly and on a more regular basis than the state was already reporting.
Within 24 hours of being notified by a local health department of School Associated COVID-19 Case(s), the COP ESD Programs must provide Public Notice to the School Community in a highly visible location on the School’s website that covers the impacted building or location. Schools are encouraged to provide information about measures in place at the school to prevent transmission of COVID-19, as well as measures that individuals can take to prevent transmission.
“Public Notice” means providing the new and cumulative counts of School Associated Case(s) of COVID-19, including the date on which the School was notified of the new School Associated Case(s).
