Michigan’s new definition of a school ‘outbreak’ means fewer will be reported
The Michigan State Department of Health is increasing the number of Kovid-1 cases that will cause an outbreak at a K-12 school.
The move will result in less reported outbreaks and inconsistent state data, at a time when school outbreaks are on the rise and local health leaders are appealing for statewide mask orders.
As of Monday, a school must have three or more related cases of an outbreak. For the past 18 months, there has been an outbreak in two or more cases. The new definition will not apply to the old outbreak.
If this change had been implemented in early September when many students were returning to the classroom, the state could have eliminated about 25% of new school outbreaks published within that period.
