Help Line

The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) has launched a COVID-19 Hotline. Public health and other experts will answer health-related questions about COVID-19. The team can also direct residents and providers to the right resources in their local communities and in other state government departments.

The hotline will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1-888-535-6136.

Staying Healthy

A little planning can ensure smooth business operations and protect public health at the same time. All individuals should continue to take the following basic personal-hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the virus:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing;
  • Avoid handshakes;
  • Avoid contact with sick people who are sick; and
  • Stay home when you are sick.
