A patient with confirmed COVID-19 is an inpatient at the University of Michigan Health System. The patient is in stable condition.
We are confident that we are using proper precautions with this patient who was carefully isolated to minimize the risk of exposure to our employees and patients.
Based on that, risk of infection is low for our employees and visitors, even if you work in our hospitals or near the unit where the patient is isolated. Risk is considered high if you have prolonged exposure to someone with symptoms without appropriate protective equipment.
