County Executive Coulter Continues Public Health Preparedness and Activates Emergency Operations Center for Coronavirus Efforts

Pontiac, Mich., Mar. 11, 2020 – Oakland County Executive David Coulter has directed the Emergency Operations Center to partially activate as part of the County’s coronavirus preparedness efforts. The partial activation enables the county to assist our partners and stakeholders with coordinating resources and response to this public health emergency. The first presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in Oakland County was announced last night.  The Oakland county case is an adult woman with international travel. Based on the Oakland County Health Division’s investigation, there was low to no exposure in the general public from this person.

In addition, Oakland County Health Division (OCHD) has released various toolkits to help community sectors prepare for and prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our communities. Toolkits and prevention resources are available at www.oakgov.com/health for the public, healthcare providers, businesses, schools, childcare centers, faith-based organizations, senior centers, food service workers and first responders. 

“As Oakland County investigates its first case of novel coronavirus, we will continue our preparedness and prevention efforts including making these toolkits available to assist various sectors of the community,” Oakland County Executive David Coulter said.  “Responding to public health emergencies is what our Health Division and Homeland Security Division is here for and we are implementing our operational plans to slow the spread of coronavirus and keep the public informed.”

The toolkits include links to interim guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prevention signage and handouts, and tools such as social media posts specific to various settings. Check the Oakland County Health Division’s Coronavirus website regularly for updated information, because this is an evolving situation.

The Health Division is working closely on preparedness efforts such as these with Oakland County’s Coronavirus Readiness Task Force assisted by Congressman Sander Levin, healthcare providers, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
