Do you have questions about Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Call the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Hotline at 1-888-535-6136.


Announcement: We will no longer be providing "Return to Work" letters. Please follow the CDC guidance on isolation and quarantine.


If you have tested positive for COVID-19, it may take several days before you receive a call from MMDHD. In the meantime, please:

  • Isolate at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms. If you have no symptoms, isolate for 10 days from the date of your positive test. After 10 days, you may end isolation if it's been 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and your COVID-19 symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, etc.) have improved.
  • Notify your close contacts. Someone with COVID-19 can spread the virus beginning 48 hours (two days) before symptoms start or 48 hours (two days) before testing positive.

If you have been identified as a close contact, it may be several days before you receive a call from MMDHD or Trace Force, a statewide notification system that partners with local health departments. In the meantime, please:

  • Self-quarantine for 14 days from your last contact with the COVID positive person (while they were considered contagious).
  • Monitor yourself for symptoms. If you do not develop symptoms, follow quarantine guidelines. If symptoms arise, get tested. Testing locations can be found at or by calling 211. If you test positive for COVID-19 you should follow home isolation guidelines. If you test negative, you still need to complete the 14 day quarantine.
  • Contacts of a contact do not need to quarantine but should monitor themselves for symptoms.
