The CDC has a Frequently Asked Questions page to help you understand more about COVID-19.
PLEASE NOTE: Case counts and statistics will only be updated Monday - Friday and exclude holidays.
**Change in reporting Oct. 6, 2021 - Cases defined as probable will be reported in cumulative case and death counts. As additional methods of testing besides the PCR test have become more common, the amount of cases classified as probable has increased and are included to provide a more accurate picture of disease in our community.**
|Report Date: October 15, 2021||Number of Cases*|
|Number of Deaths*||Recovered**|
*These numbers do not reflect any cases or deaths identified through Michigan Department of Corrections. Their numbers are listed under a separate category "Others" for the Michigan Statistics.
* Cases, Deaths, and Recovered all include confirmed and probable.
**Recovered is defined as the number of persons with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis who are alive 30 days post-onset (or referral date if onset is not available).
|Confirmed Cases- PCR test processed at lab||Probable Cases - rapid test by trained staff or symptomatic and contact with confirmed positive|
Probable cases include individuals with either a positive proctored rapid antigen test OR COVID-19 symptoms and an epidemiologic link to a confirmed COVID-19 case. If a probable case, during the isolation period, meets the criteria for a confirmed case they will be subtracted from the probable total and added to the confirmed case count.

Map of Cases
The 10/11/2021 map of Cumulative Cases of COVID-19 in Jackson County Townships is posted.
**This map is the first to show all cases including confirmed and probable from the beginning of the pandemic. The number in parenthesis shows the increase in cases from last week and the distribution of the 1,713 probable cases reported in the county.**
At times, street addresses are not always available which affect the ability to map all data. If this occurs, a difference between posted cases totals and mapped cases may be seen. You can download a pdf version of the map for printing.
