- Active or imminent outbreak
- At Risk
- You must notify HR if you are traveling to one of the above mentioned domestic hot spots or out of the country

LANSING, Mich. – With several states in the U.S. now at high risk for a coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, the Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) recommends people with recent travel to high-risk states self-quarantine upon return to Michigan. Employers are encouraged to exclude such travelers from the workplace and offer telework upon return if possible. Currently, this is a self-quarantine recommendation, not a countywide emergency order. Self-quarantine should last for 14 days since a visit to a state that is at risk for active or imminent outbreak.
“Approximately one-third of positive cases in Ingham County have recent travel in their history,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. “Travel can be a very risky activity right now. Many people are used to being able to getaway in the summer, but this is not a typical summer. We urge caution and the avoidance of non-essential travel, especially to high-risk areas.”
We appreciate your cooperation in keeping us all safe!
