The Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH) reports that, as of December 21, 2021, there are 282 active cases and 21 hospitalizations related to COVID-19.
Jennifer Rodriguez, Public Health Director for Livingston County, stated, “As new COVID-19 variants are emerging, we encourage our residents to complete their initial vaccine series and to get their booster doses.”

At-Home COVID-19 Test Online Reporting Residents who test positive for COVID-19 using at-home tests can now visit the Livingston County website to report their results.
“This is a simplified, expedited process for those who test positive using at-home COVID-19 tests,” stated Rodriguez. “A positive individual can now confidentially submit their at-home results to us without having to follow up with additional PCR testing at a physician’s office. This saves a significant amount of time and means that our LCDOH team can quickly issue an order of isolation for the positive individual to share with their employer, if necessary.”
Rodriguez urges anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 using an at-home test to report it to LCDOH as soon as possible.
COVID-19 Contact Tracing
LCDOH now offers a way for those who test positive for COVID-19 to begin the contact tracing process themselves. Using the online form, positive individuals answer a series of questions related to recent contacts. The form is then confidentially submitted to LCDOH for follow up.
“This online tool creates efficiencies and streamlines the contact tracing process for positive individuals and our LCDOH team,” said Rodriguez.
