Macomb County considered COVID-19 hotspot, should be under stay-home order, map shows – Detroit Free Press

While one county in the Upper Peninsula stays at a “tipping point” for coronavirus risk level, some lower Michigan counties are increasing in danger level.
Macomb, Tuscola and Gladwin counties have all been marked as orange, which means that the coronavirus risk level is happening at an “sped up speed,” according to the COVID Risk Levels Dashboard by the Harvard Global Health Institute.
The site suggests a stay-at-home order and more testing and tracing in counties marked in orange.
When it comes to Macomb County, as part of the city Detroit tri-county area, there is a 7-day average of 101.6 new daily cases, according to the site. In addition, the site reports that the average is 11.6 cases per 100,000 individuals.
