As of May 14, Canton has had 7,397 confirmed Coronavirus cases and 116 deaths. There have been 99,630 cases in Wayne County (excluding the City of Detroit).
You will note it shows 51 new deaths but only 2 of those deaths occurred since yesterday’s report. The remaining 49 deaths date back to June 2020 and are the result of the state checking filed death certificates. Sometimes, especially with elderly patients, COVID is not listed as the primary cause of death, but the person may have tested positive for COVID prior to death. In those cases, the state counts those as COVID-related deaths. Periodically, the state will match positive test data with death certificates, adding in any new categorized COVID death.

Small Business Loans (Economic Disaster Loan) - Governor Whitmer is seeking additional solutions for small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Earlier this month, Congress passed legislation that makes $1 billion available to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to provide low-interest loans to small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and nonprofits that have suffered substantial economic losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor has informed SBA that she is seeking an Economic Injury Disaster Loan Declaration for the state and has initiated the process to receive the declaration from SBA. Once granted, small businesses in qualifying areas will be able to access low-interest loans through the SBA. In the interim, we are encouraging small businesses that could benefit from SBA loans to start collecting the information they’ll need to complete and submit their application.
