The Health and Human Services Department is sending a team to Grand Rapids to aid in the surge of CoVid-19 cases.

According to the Michigan Advance, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services will be sending a CoVid-19 Response Assistance Field Team (CRAFT) to Grand Rapids.

In an interview with the news site, Governor Gretchen Whitmer said,

"They have Grand Rapids on their radar as a place that they want to come in for a few days and study and understand what’s happening and try to be of assistance. It’s not just on my radar, obviously; it’s on the national radar too.”

A HHS spokesperson told the Advance the team will be used mainly for research and support.

"Some of things the teams are looking at include: helping states and localities to address the need for adequate data, assess testing capabilities and plans, and protect the most vulnerable populations, particularly seniors.”
