Any individual wanting to enter any of our CMH buildings, will be screened for symptoms and have their temperature taken. Because we serve a population that may have physical health conditions, as well as some over the age of 65 years, we ask everyone with a fever, cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath, recent travel or contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 to remain home. In addition, if you or anyone in your household has had a fever in the past 72 hours, do not enter any of the CMH buildings.
Gogebic County Community Mental Health provides behavioral health services to those residents of Gogebic County who have a serious mental illness, serious emotional disturbance, intellectual/developmental disability and/or substance abuse disorder.
