85 positive COVID-19 cases confirmed amidst the Harper outbreak

According to the latest update, 85 new cases have been confirmed in the COVID-19 outbreak of the Harper restaurant and Brew Pub located in the East Lansing. Out of these, at least 52 have been reported to be residents of Ingham County. This outbreak has now expanded to the rest of the state, according to the health officials. This roots back to June 12-20 when the bar reopened, as Health Officer Linda S. Vail, said.

A majority of them have indicated mild symptoms and have not been hospitalized yet. At least 10 of those have reported being asymptomatic. The restaurant opened completely within the local guidelines. Loyal customers, however, completely ignoring the social distancing norms stood in long queues to get in.

It is also known that one of the customers, after getting infected, threw a party at home. This person was later tested positive for the virus. This incident marked a 600 percent jump from the prior day of two total cases.

Measures being taken

Harper has temporarily been closed down to install new safety features. The owners said in a statement that they are preparing to install a new heating and cooling system. They are also ready to add a line management app. These measures will help in the proper organization of the crowd, which is integral.

The government has asked anyone who had been to the restaurant in its opening week to quarantine themselves for 14 days at home. If they notice any symptoms, they should also get tested for COVID-19.
