To the residents of Rogers City,

The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused all of us to significantly modify our daily lives.

The Governor’s “Stay at Home” order is now the law throughout Michigan. The citizens of Rogers City and the surrounding townships are meeting this deadly threat head on, as we comply with the mandates designed to keep us safe. We couldn’t be more proud and thankful for our businesses, organizations and even individuals, who have made changes to safely assist community members with their activities for daily living.

The city manager and staff have compiled the following Community Resource Page in an effort to provide citizens with helpful information regarding services currently being offered by a variety of local providers. This difficult period in our history will pass, and we will return to our task of growing a stronger more vibrant community, but we all must work together in this current effort to control a very serious threat.
