In addition to reported testing results, wastewater samples are also being monitored to track the presence of COVID-19 in our community. To see local trends, we recommend using the University of Michigan Wastewater Dashboard. CDC also has a wastewater tracker, but data may be limited or less frequently updated than the UM site. Read more about COVID-19 wastewater surveillance in Michigan here.
State and local data is also updated on the Michigan coronavirus website on Tuesday. You can see data and modeling updates from the state here.

Archived COVID-19 Data
The following graphs are no longer being updated:
- COVID Vaccine Status of Washtenaw County Residents with COVID-related Hospitalization (by month of admission) (3/1/21 to 7/28/22)
- The contributing and protective factors for severe illness and hospitalization for COVID at this point in the pandemic are more complex and not represented well in these data. For example, many “primary series + booster” hospitalizations have occurred in people who are more than six months out from a booster and are not considered up-to-date on vaccines. In addition, “up-to-date” status for vaccination continues to change as we respond to the shifting nature of the pandemic.

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. COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting some communities in Washtenaw County, including Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti township zip codes and our county’s African American population. Similar disparities have also been seen in Michigan and elsewhere in the United States. Read more about why these inequities may be present, how the Washtenaw County Health Department is working with communities facing health disparities, and community resources.
People of every race, economic status, and age are at risk for coronavirus and should continue taking every precaution to help slow the spread of illness. We must continue to push for policies that address the inequities that this pandemic has brought to light, including paid time off and access to health insurance. Discrimination and disparities are unjust and put us all at greater risk. Individuals in need of essential resources can view Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development’s list of community services or call 2-1-1.
We have a responsibility to provide data that reflects health inequities so that everyone can take action and have the ability to protect themselves from COVID-19. We continue to work with community partners to address these inequities.
