— Percent positivity from Nov. 16-22.

On Nov. 19, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services issued a public health advisory for everyone to mask indoors when around people who are not from the same household. This is essentially an amplification of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation for indoor masking in all public places that has been in place since early August.    Currently, Michigan has one of the highest rates in the nation of new cases per population for the past seven days. 

Current case trends in the health department’s jurisdiction of Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet and Otsego counties continue to be on the rise. Health department staff are urging everyone to take seriously the spread of COVID-19 and its lasting effect on individuals, school systems, businesses and the community-at-large. COVID-19 test positivity is high and the rate of new cases is on pace to meet or exceed any previous high, Peacock noted.

— Weekly new cases per 100,000 people from Nov. 16-22. (This number represents the new COVID infections per week in a particular county. To adjust for population “per 100,000 people” is used):  • Antrim County – 476   • Otsego County – 25.2% 

• Emmet County – 12.7%  • Charlevoix County – 21.7%
