This article describes how in Michigan, in July 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services commissioned a project to survey Michigan residents on their attitudes toward masking, social distancing, vaccines, and other safety precautions. The department used survey responses to inform COVID-19 public health messaging strategies. In September 2020, the department launched the “Spread Hope, Not COVID” campaign to encourage Michiganders to continue helping reduce the spread of the virus and take actions to keep themselves and others safe.
