MDHHS Stay Well Program

MDHHS Stay Well Program

Small businesses in Michigan have been hit hard and have suffered great economic impact as a result of COVID-19. Unfortunately many small businesses are unaware of the free resources provided to them to help support both business owners and staff. With many organizations returning to in-person work and the extreme shortage of available individuals to fill positions it can be very taxing on the mental health of both workers and business owners. 

The MDHHS Stay Well program has some great resources already in place such as a 24-7 crisis counseling hotline, virtual support groups, resilience programs and on demand webinars. MDHHS is also working to develop specific programs that will be aimed directly at small business owners and their staff to support the return to in-person work, help with employee/owner burnout and much more.

These resources are FEMA funded and supported through MDHHS.

COVID-19 Transmission Levels & Mask Guidance

COVID-19 transmission levels can be assessed using the MI Start Map or the CDC COVID Data Tracker. Per the CDC regarding their Data Tracker, “Data presented here might differ from data on state and local websites due to differences in how data were collected (e.g., date a specimen was obtained or the date a case was reported) or how the metrics are calculated. For the most accurate and up-to-date data for a specific county or state, visit the relevant state or local health department.”

Therefore, Ingham County will assess the level of community transmission using the CDC Transmission Indicator Framework found on the MI Safe Start Map which uses State of Michigan Metrics.

Translating the Community Transmission Levels between the MI Safe Start Map Risk Levels and
the CDC Transmission Indicators for Ingham County.

CDC Guidance, issued July 27, 2021, recommends that all individuals in areas of substantial or high COVID-19 transmission wear masks in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.
