LANSING, MI — Michigan added two schools to its list of ongoing coronavirus outbreaks Monday, according to the most recent data released by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

According to that data, two students at Van Hoosen Middle School in Rochester Hills and three students at the Breithaupt Career and Technical Center in Detroit recently tested positive for the coronavirus.

There are currently 82 ongoing coronavirus outbreaks in Michigan schools, according to the MDHHS.

Here is a list of ongoing coronavirus outbreaks in Michigan schools:

It's important to note that a coronavirus outbreak is different than a case. A COVID-19 outbreak is defined as two or more cases with a link by place and time indicating a shared exposure outside of a household.

The information provided by the state on Monday includes K-12, college and university school name, address, number of cases and if the cases involved staff, students or both. Students or staff exposed to COVID-19 outside the school building and are not thought to have spread the virus in the school due to quarantine or self-isolation are not included in the data.

Many factors, including the lack of ability to conduct effective contact tracing in certain settings, may result in underreporting of outbreaks, MDHHS said. This information does not provide a complete picture of school outbreaks in Michigan and the absence of identified outbreaks in a school does not mean it is not experiencing an outbreak.
