Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services - HCS County has moved into a "high" COVID-19 community level.
At this level it is strongly recommended that you:
- Wear a mask in indoor public locations (choose a multilayer surgical, KN95, or N95 mask rather than a cloth mask).
- Stay up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccines (if you need an initial dose or booster, visit http://vaccines.gov).
- Get tested if feeling ill or if you have been exposed. Test before and after travel, as well as before gatherings, especially when events may include those who are at higher risk of severe illness.
- Stay away from others if you are feeling ill, have been recently exposed, are waiting for test results, or have tested positive. If you test positive, talk to your doctor right away about treatment options to prevent severe illness.
- Maintain improved ventilation throughout indoor spaces when possible.
- If you’re at high risk for severe illness, consider taking additional precautions
COVID-19 Case Reporting
Per requirements from MDHHS, Kalamazoo RESA provides below a public notice within 24 hours of being notified of a KRESA-associated COVID-19 case. All new cases represent positive cases that have been reported by Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services on that date. Cumulative cases represent the total number of cases to date, including new cases.
Please note that the case count does not reflect an outbreak within the agency. For a list of current outbreaks, please visit MDHHS’ school-related outbreak reporting website, updated every Monday.
