In Michigan, at least 107 newly diagnosed coronavirus cases are related to a bar.
The Ingham County Department of Health announced on Monday that 95 people are now visiting restaurants and beer bars in East Lansing Harper from June 12-20, and their COVID-19 test was positive.
According to a statement issued by the department, another 12 people “have been exposed to the primary disease, but did not go to Harper themselves”, also infected with the virus.
The number has increased since the outbreak, prompting Ingham County to issue an “urgent order to reduce the restaurant̵7;s capacity to 50% or not more than 75, whichever is less.”
Customers who test positive for coronavirus are between 16 and 28 years old.
No one was hospitalized. Most patients showed mild symptoms, 28 of which were asymptomatic. 40% are Michigan State University students or students about to graduate.
Ingham rural health officials urged people present within 9 days to be tested for coronavirus and self-quarantine within 14 days of the date of the last visit.
Linda Vail, a health official in Ingham County, warned last week: “There may be more people infected with COVID-19,” the outbreak has 34 outbreaks.
The department inspector said that the 950-person facility had been reopened at 50% capacity on June 8 and “followed appropriate safety procedures related to employees, restaurant capacity and table spacing.”
Harper announced that it will post a lengthy post on Facebook on June 23, announcing a temporary shutdown-to modify its air-conditioning system and further improve social alienation measures.
The venue wrote: “We tried to instruct customers waiting in line to wear masks and conduct social counseling through signs on public sidewalks and slogans on railings.”
It added: “Our supervision of the production line on the stairs has been successful, but trying to get customers to follow our recommendations on public sidewalks is full of challenges.” “Because we have no right to control the boundaries of public property, we face difficulties It’s keeping it open, letting this situation continue, or closing until we have a strategy to completely eliminate the boundaries.”
