Board of Directors




Public Health Statement

In an effort to promote the safety of the general public while simultaneously meeting the requirements of Michigan’s Open Meetings Act (OMA) as amended by Public Act 254 of 2020, The Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network´s (DWIHN) Committee and Board meetings will be conducted in person and electronically via Zoom, beginning January 1, 2022, while there is a local state of emergency in effect for the City of Detroit.   

On December 16, 2021, in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Chief Public Health Officer for the City of Detroit issued a Continued Emergency Epidemic Order Due to COVID-19. This order extended a local state of emergency in the City of Detroit effective January 1, 2022 until March 31, 2022, and provided that public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act must provide remote public access to meetings and require social distancing for individuals physically present at meetings in order to reduce the risk of spreading infection. The requirements under the City of Detroit’s Continued Emergency Epidemic Order and the OMA are satisfied as the DWIHN Board of Directors holds its meetings in the affected area.
