COVID-19: How’s Livingston County faring? We’ve got the numbers

As things stand right now, maybe it wasn’t such a bad thing to have Livingston County grouped with the Detroit Restart Region of Michigan.

When the Michigan Safe Start Plan was first released on May 7, 2020, Livingston County being part of the Detroit Restart Region didn’t make sense to some in the community; state Reps. Hank Vaupel, R-Fowlerville, and Ann Bollin, R-Brighton Township — with the support of many in the business community — wrote a letter to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, asking her to move Livingston County to the Lansing Restart Region.

Whitmer denied their request.

Looking at the current snapshot, though, maybe it’s a better place for the county to be. The Lansing and Grand Rapids regions, in particular, have experienced a big spike in cases, increasing to a daily rate above 20 new positive cases per 1 million people, according to Michigan’s Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun. While the Detroit, Kalamazoo, Saginaw and Jackson regions are also seeing spikes, they’ve been below 20 new positive cases per 1 million people.

Overall, Michigan’s numbers aren’t as strong as a couple weeks ago. Whitmer said at a June 30 press conference that she’s considering downgrading certain regions of the state, which would mean some restrictions reimposed because of increases in COVID-19 cases; lower Michigan won’t move from Phase 4 to 5 before July 4, as the governor had hoped. (Phase 5 would allow the reopening of limited-capacity indoor movie theaters and gyms, subject to safety procedures designed to minimize the spread of the virus.)

COVID-19 case increases across Michigan also show a spike among people age 20-29, with about 23 percent of new cases occurring among that age range.

Nationally, the U.S. has set new records almost every day of the last week, reaching 50,000 new cases on July 1.

So, how is Livingston County doing?
