There is strong evidence of community spread locally. Residents can assume there is a possibility the virus may be present when they are in public places in the community. Everyone should be using all recommended prevention measures when out in public or gathering with others not living in the same house (face coverings, distance, hand cleaning).

Travel Restrictions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated their travel guidance 8/21. Quarantine returning from international travel is now strongly recommended not required, see https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-during-covid19.html.

Washtenaw County Health Department's Returning from Travel: COVID Recommendations will be updated with updated CDC recommendations shortly. State and local recommendations remain the same.

REMEMBER: Discrimination harms public health. We know viruses do not discriminate based on location, race, ethnicity, or national origin. However, viruses like COVID-19 can highlight health disparities that are deeply rooted in our society. Let’s fight this public health concern with compassion and science, not fear and discrimination.
