This revised FAQ information page will help you understand the numbers and why we post them the way that we do. 

NOTE:  There will be a change in the days when numbers are posted to this webpage. In keeping with the new schedule stated by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) in this press release, numbers will no longer be posted on Sundays beginning with Sunday, September 6, 2020.  The cumulative numbers posted on Monday will include the data from Sunday and Monday . These numbers will still be posted each day by 12:00 Noon .  Recovered numbers are being posted as received.  Epicurve data and Township maps are also posted on Mondays.

Epicurve Data

The Epicurve graph available  (thru 10/25/2020)  will allow you to see how the daily number of cases have gone up and down since the first case was identified in March.  You can open the Epicurve Data here.  EpiCurve data will be posted each Monday according to the template which collects and runs the numbers.

Map of Cases

In order to better illustrate areas of highest positive rates, the legend was recently revised to allow for higher cases counts in each color grouping. The 10/26/2020 map of Cumulative Cases of COVID-19 in Jackson County Townships is posted.  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.
