DAILY COVID-19 PATIENT STATS
Today’s census for COVID-19 inpatients and those patients under investigation (PUI) are noted below:
Discharges: 643 total COVID-19 discharges to date, 1 in the last 24 hours. These numbers include patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities but excludes deaths and discharges to hospice.
TEAM MEMBER COVID-19 TESTING STATS*
* Data from 3/10 through 7/21. The testing stats reflect just Michigan Medicine employees, not all University of Michigan employees. It also reflects only those who sought testing at or were hospitalized at Michigan Medicine or reported their testing to Occupational Health Services. Some Michigan Medicine employees may have been tested outside our system.
FAQs: FACE COVERING REQUIREMENTS AT MICHIGAN MEDICINE
The recent release of the new U-M Face Covering Policy for COVID-19 has resulted in many questions about how the policy will impact Michigan Medicine employees, as well as patients and visitors. The attached FAQ has been created to answer some of those questions.
The FAQs are also posted on the Michigan Medicine Headlines COVID-19 information page and will be updated to reflect future changes to state, university and institutional face covering requirements.
