Shelter in Place

On Monday, March 23, 2020, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a “stay home” order to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus, ordering Michigan residents to stay at home except for essential purposes and telling non-essential businesses to stop asking employees to report to work. Though sweeping, it includes exemptions for essentials such as:


  • Shopping for food or medicine
  • Getting needed medical treatment
  • Getting fuel
  • Walking a pet
  • Walking for exercise
  • Staffing to allow maintenance of “minimum basic operations” for many employers


Any BCHC resident requiring referrals to other agencies for assistance, please contact Connie Davis at Hope Network/New Passages (989) 893-6292

Preventative Measures

The best prevention for viruses, such as influenza, the common cold or COVID-19: 


If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, call the nearest hospital.  

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.   
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others.
  • Practice “social distancing”. Stay at least 6 feet away from others when in a public setting.
