Summit Township is doing everything we can to keep our residents safe. Although we are taking steps to reduce risk, we have identified the possibility of COVID-19 spread in our township office. We have worked with the Jackson County Health Department to identify who may be at risk and have been making steps to contact those individuals. In an abundance of caution, we are notifying the public that anyone who was in our office from October 28th – November 3rd should closely monitor themselves for 14 days for the appearance of new symptoms. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure. Anyone experiencing one or more of these symptoms should immediately quarantine themselves and seek testing:

  • Fever. Take a temperature twice a day, AM and PM
  • Coughing
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose or congestion
  • Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
  • Loss of taste or smell

Known close contacts of positive individuals are being contacted and instructed to quarantine for 14 days from their last day of exposure. With evidence of community spread, community mitigation strategies and restrictions are in place to slow the spread of the virus as much as possible. Please take every possible opportunity to practice prevention and social distancing.  

For COVID-19 testing in Jackson County, you can contact the Henry Ford COVID-19 Patient Hotline at (517)205-6100, or the Center for Family Health Hotline at (517)748-5363. Please note, receiving a COVID-19 test after an exposure does not mean that you will not develop symptoms or test positive at a future time within your 14 day period.
