COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution Status

*New* Quarantine & Isolation Guidance (as of 1/3/22)

We have updated our general (not school) Quarantine and Isolation Guidance to align with the CDC’s newest guidance and as supported by MDHHS. Additional recommendations are included to further limit spread of COVID-19 in Kalamazoo County. See the full PDF on what to do if you test positive or are exposed.

On 11/19/21, MDHHS issued a Public Health Advisory for all Michiganders, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask while in indoor public settings. This Public Health Advisory is still in effect.

Please note we’re waiting on MDHHS and CDC for their updated school guidance – this guidance here is for the general public.
