City of Ann Arbor Emergency Management personnel are in active collaboration with the Washtenaw County Health Department, local hospitals, the University of Michigan, and the American Red Cross regarding coronavirus preparation.
It’s important to note that the Washtenaw County Health Department is the lead agency as they have emergency operations plans to address infectious disease and pandemics. As of March 2, there are no confirmed cases in Washtenaw County nor in Michigan.
However, they do recommend the following preventive measures for the public: practice good handwashing, stay home if sick and cover your cough. City personnel will continue to monitor the situation closely, coordinate with our local partners and share city updates as necessary.
Please visit the Washtenaw County Health Department’s website for the most up to date information, including the “how to be prepared for coronavirus” fact sheet (PDF), and guidance at www.washtenaw.org/Health.
