The state of Michigan is now reporting 225 new cases of COVID-19, for a total of 549.

The state released the numbers Friday afternoon.

Those numbers include three deaths related to the virus.

The reported cases include results from commercial and clinical labs, the MDHHS said.

“We are pleased to announce that we are now able to provide testing results from hospitals and other entities outside of our state laboratory,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health. “We knew there were additional people in Michigan with COVID-19 that had not yet been tested. This emphasizes the need to continue to practice social distancing and other community mitigation practices to help slow the spread of this disease.”

The state said cases have been reported in the following counties: Bay, Charlevoix, Clinton, Eaton, Genesee, Ingham, Jackson, Kent, Leelanau, Livingston, Macomb, Midland, Monroe, Montcalm, Oakland, Otsego, Ottawa, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne.

The numbers released by the state on Friday report Genesee County has one confirmed case. However, the Genesee County Health Department announced it has had four confirmed cases as of Friday.
