At least 107 coronavirus cases have been linked to a bar in East Lansing, Michigan, health officials said.
The Ingham County Health Department is asking patrons who visited Harper’s Restaurant & Brew Pub between June 12 and June 20 to self-quarantine and report cases of Covid-19, the department said in a statement.
Of the more than 100 positive cases, 12 are from secondary transmission, Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail said Monday night.
The number of positive cases linked to the bar has risen rapidly since it was first reported Tuesday. Initially, 14 positivecases were reported; that jumped to 34 on Wednesday. By Saturday, that had risen to about 85, Vail said.
The bar followed safety guidelines for employees, capacity guidelines and table spacing, Harper’s Restaurant & Brew Pub said in a June 22 statement on Facebook.
