Must Read

Most new cases are young people between the ages of 15 and 25, the Washtenaw County Department of Health said in a press release Monday.

The party was believed to have taken place between July 2nd and 3rd and that health officials are now asking everyone who attended the party to quarantine and monitor themselves for the symptoms of the virus for 14 days.

There were 66 other people believed to have had direct contact with a confirmed case. That number does not include family members who are immediate family contacts in the newly identified cases, the statement said.

Over the weekend, Louisiana Governor Bel Edwards said new cases had been linked to random encounters in people’s yards. The governor issued a limitation that requires meetings of less than 50 people Consequently.

Local health officials said that this group in Michigan highlights how easily and quickly the virus can infect people.

“This is a clear example of how quickly this virus spreads and how many people can be affected in a very short span of time,” said Jimena Loveluck, a health officer at the Washtenaw County Health Department. “We cannot hope to achieve our goal of containing COVID-19 and preventing further cases, hospitalizations and deaths without the full support and cooperation of the community.”

The spread of the party had an impact on people outside the county and even the state, according to the release.

The party and subsequent events led to further displays in retail stores, restaurants, businesses, canoe rentals, clubs, camps, athletic teams and a retired community.

“We need people of all ages, including young people, who take COVID-19 seriously and follow public health guidelines and instructions. This means avoiding large meetings without physical distance or facial coverage. It also means collaborating with the Department of Health to complete the case investigation and contact the track, “Loveluck added.

“None of us want to be the reason why someone in our community or county falls seriously ill or dies,” says Brian D. Marl, mayor of the city of Saline. “We have the opportunity to work together and with our local health department to contain it as quickly as possible. We know what we need to do and we can definitely do it.”
