To break the chain of infection and continue to slow the spread, we’re calling anyone who has been exposed to coronavirus. The process is called contact tracing and it has been used to control diseases for decades. But you have to answer the phone for it to work. If you get a call from MI COVID HELP or your local health department please answer.
How Michigan Will Slow the Spread of COVID-19
It’s a simple three-part strategy that has been used by public health officials for decades to contain the spread of infectious disease. Now, Michigan is using this 1-2-3 plan to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. These tools are critical to reopening our economy while keeping our communities safe. By taking this seriously and doing their part, all Michiganders can be part of the solution.
We are partnering with medical providers to expand testing capacity and make sure that testing is free and easy to access.
When someone tests positive for
COVID-19, we will notify their close contacts so they know how to take the appropriate precautions to keep themselves and community members safe.
We will ask those who have been exposed to COVID-19 to stay home to help contain the spread of the virus.
