ALLEGAN, Mich. — Allegan County officials say the county has been categorized as a low-risk area for COVID-19.

This comes after the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published guidelines that ease restrictions on mitigation strategies.

As a result, the Allegan County Health Department (ACHD) will center their attention on positive COVID cases and contact tracing among high-risk individuals and settings, the county says.

Under the county’s low-risk status, residents are advised to do the following:

  • Be up-to-date on vaccines.
  • Get tested and stay home if you’re feeling sick.
  • Continue using increased ventilation at schools, businesses and other organizations.
  • Wear a mask if feeling sick and while in quarantine or isolation (regardless of vaccination status).
  • Self-isolate and inform close contacts if you test positive for COVID-19.
