Health Officer's Weekly Update
Health Officer Kathy Moore sits down with Andy O'Riley and discusses COVID-19 for this week. Some outbreaks have happened - hear how and why. She's asking all to proceed with caution and remember those who might be effected who might not be able to ward off the virus.

Assistance Programs Near End
The Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) is reminding consumers that COVID-19-related assistance programs and forbearance periods are nearing end dates, and those who have taken advantage of these programs should resume making timely payments, if possible, or contact their lenders right away if they still need assistance.

These programs include Mi Mortgage Relief Partnership, CARES Act assistance for federally back mortgages, and the CARES Act Unemployment Benefit. Additional information can be found in the full Press Release.
Tips for Personal and Social Events
As the community resumes social activities and personal services, it's important to think about safety. Dining out, hosting or attending gatherings and cookouts, going to the salon, exercising in groups, traveling overnight all carry risks. However, with proper precautions, you can lower your risk of COVID-19 infection.
