The MI Safe Start Map is a dashboard designed to monitor the threshold of COVID-19 across the state of Michigan. This dashboard reports estimated community transmission levels, case rates per 100,000 by, and  daily percent of positive COVID-19 tests. The data and associated thresholds for community transmission here are derived from state COVID-19 data that may contain that are frequently updated and/or revised as COVID-19 cases are investigated. Consequently, there are times that the indicators may be or appear different than national data sources. Differences between this dashboard and local data is due to the date and time data is pulled, or type of dates associated with cases (e.g., using referral date instead of symptom onset date). The MI Start Map is updated daily and considered the best source of local data by Berrien County and CDC.

Please note: the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving and unpredictable viral outbreak. All data presented on this site is subject to change. Use caution and care in interpreting this data.
