Today, the State of Michigan announced 507 new cases of Coronavirus in Michigan and 19 more deaths, bringing the state total to 2,295 cases and 43 deaths.

While there are currently no confirmed cases in Shiawassee County, SCHD's update today revealed 272 test specimens collected from individuals with symptoms that would have been consistent with COVID-19 symptoms.  100 of those tests have been returned and are negative.  Results in Shiawassee County are delayed by several days as they are processed by private and state labs until Memorial Hospital has the ability to conduct its own tests.  Yesterday, SCHD indicated Memorial was waiting for that lab equipment to arrive.
