Welcome to Lac Vieux Desert Health Center!


January 11, 2022

To the LVD, Watersmeet, and surrounding community:

As you are aware, we are experiencing a significant surge in COVID-19 cases fueled by the extremely contagious Omicron variant.

Testing performed through the clinic has resulted in 46 positive COVID-19 cases in the two weeks from December 28th-January7th with 30-40% of all tests performed being positive.  Testing typically only represents a fraction of the true number of cases circulating in the area.

The same pattern is occurring throughout Michigan and Wisconsin.

With this as the background, we encourage everyone to take extra care during the next several weeks to wear a mask in public, keep extra spacing between each other, avoid large gatherings whenever possible, and stay home except for important outings: especially if you are at higher risk for developing a severe case of COVID-19 due to your age or medical risks.

Stay safe and warm,

Sadie Valliere and Dr. Hadley
