Coronavirus-19 (COVID-19)


Northpointe has been closely monitoring the emergence of Coronavirus-19 & the rising number of cases in Michigan. We are staying updated with the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS).  Northpointe has made some temporary changes in services to prevent the spread of the virus.

We are here for those people in services or who are seeking services!

What Does the Change in the Executive Orders 2020-91 & 2020-92 mean for Northpointe as some restrictions have been lifted for the Upper Peninsula?

Northpointe will continue to practice current measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 & the risk of exposure to staff, those we serve, and our community. We will be implementing a phased in approach to start bringing staff back to the office before we begin providing face-to-face services which are currently being provided via video/phone. It is necessary to closely monitor the trends of COVID-19 in our communities as these restrictions are gradually reduced to ensure we can re-engage safely. (Link to Executive Orders)

We will continue to provide new information on our website & on the Northpointe Behavioral Healthcare System Facebook page to keep you updated.

It is our goal to provide services without putting any one at risk of exposure & to play our part in reducing the spread of the Coronavirus.

Thank you and please stay healthy!
