Michigan has 14 counties at a high COVID-19 Community Level this week according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC recommends masking while indoors in public when counties are at a high Community Level, regardless of vaccination status.

The 14 counties at a high level this week are: Calhoun, Clare, Clinton, Dickinson, Eaton, Ingham, Ionia, Iron, Lapeer, Macomb, Midland, Schoolcraft, Shiawassee and Washtenaw counties.

For Community Levels, the CDC looks at three factors for each county: the percentage of staffed hospital beds occupied by COVID patients, COVID hospital admissions per capita and COVID cases per capita.

A county is at a high level when there are 200 or more new cases per 100,000 in the past week and either (a) 10-plus new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 or (b) when at least 10% of the staffed inpatient beds are occupied by COVID patients.

If hospitalizations are particularly high, even a county with low cases can be at a high level, per the CDC formula.

Michigan is reporting 2,086 new, confirmed cases per day in the past week.

Reported COVID cases are up 16.0% from last week, as the state had 2,086 new, confirmed cases this week.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reports COVID cases once per week.

Michigan had fewer COVID cases than last week, but managed to move up the list for highest COVID rate because 46 of the 50 states saw their rate decline in the past week.

West Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Alaska, North Carolina and Ohio had the most COVID cases per capita this week.

For COVID hospitalizations, Michigan ranked 14th of 50 this week.

The state also had the fourth-most COVID deaths per capita this week.

37 Michigan counties at highest risk for cases.

There are 37 counties at the highest risk level (Level E) for cases, down from 43 counties last week.

The counties with the highest COVID rates in Michigan this week were Iron, Dickinson, Washtenaw, Midland, Schoolcraft and Ingham counties.

Eaton County had the highest positivity rate of all Michigan counties this week, at 30.5%.

Before this week, Michigan COVID hospitalizations had risen in eight of the previous nine weeks.

Michigan is reporting 21 new COVID deaths per day in the past week.

Michigan averaged 21 COVID deaths per day this week, the highest mark since March.

But it’s still far fewer COVID deaths than Michigan had during omicron’s winter peak.

Michigan was averaging more than 100 COVID deaths per day during parts of January.

Put another way, roughly one in every 287 Michigan residents have died from confirmed COVID.
