(WLUC) - As of Monday, June 1 at 9:00 a.m. there have been a total of 117 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Upper Peninsula. Of those, at least 74 are considered recovered and 16 have resulted in a death.

Most U.P. counties have now released updated numbers about recoveries. Recovered is defined as the number of people with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis who are alive 30 days after the onset of symptoms. The available recovery numbers we have are posted by county below. Those updates do not come every day.

The state has compiled data about completed tests by region. The U.P. is Region 8. Click here to see the data for the U.P..

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is referring people seeking a COVID-19 test to check this online database. The state has issued this list of testing priorities to be followed by testing sites.

County health departments, the Michigan DHHS and the Michigan Department of Corrections are releasing varying levels of detail about each confirmed case. Any available information about a case will be posted here. There are many cases where health officials have not released any information.

Why doesn't the state provide more details about the location and hospital of patients who test positive or are being treated?

Health departments say people determined to be at elevated risk of exposure to any specific COVID-19 positive case will be contacted directly by their local health department for illness screening in accordance with federal and state guidelines.

Health experts say everyone's focus should be on prevention strategies such as social distancing, wearing a face cover in public and at work, hand washing hygiene, hygienic practices when coughing and sneezing and staying home when sick.

The numbers below may not match MDHHS numbers because TV6 & FOX UP are incorporating the latest information from county health departments and the Michigan Department of Corrections. The MDOC partnered with the Michigan National Guard to conduct facility-wide testing at facilities in the Upper Peninsula the week of May 4. Teams began at Baraga Correctional facility and moved east across the U.P. No positive cases were revealed.

Below is a list of cases, by county, with links to any available information about each case. The counties are in alphabetical order. The cases are listed in chronological order, based on when they were first officially reported.
