(WXYZ) — The State of Michigan on Monday began providing coronavirus statistics for long-term care facilities.

The numbers are broken down by county and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services also established a regional hub strategy to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19 within nursing facilities.

Within each county, there is a list of the locations and the number of COVID-19 patients per facility.

Those regional hubs have established units dedicated to treating COVID-19 patients with appropriate staffing levels and protocols.

The case counts on the website will be updated, but do ont include patients or staff who have recovered or passed away prior tot he date listed.

"This information does not replace a thoughtful conversation with facility staff about their current infection control practices and mitigation strategies," the state said on the website.
