Yes, There's Still A Pandemic: 34 People Who Pack East Lansing Bar Get Covid

For those who think the pandemic is no longer an issue, think again.

Ingham County's Health Department says at least 34 young people who visited Harper's Restaurant and Brew Pub on Albert Street in East Lansing between June 12-20 have tested positive for coronavirus.

The popular spot is near Michigan State University. Health officials advise customers who visited the bar during that period to get tested.

"Given the number of cases in this outbreak, we consider this a higher risk exposure than a typical visit to a restaurant or bar," county health officer Linda S. Vail says in a Wednesday statement.

"There are likely more people infected with COVID-19 not yet identified. We need help from people who went to Harper’s during the exposure dates so that we can contain the outbreak. We need everyone exposed to stay home."

2. Thanks TT, that's frightening for a single local.

Sounds like some of the bar's regulars were highly contagious and brought it in most every day.....

Also reminds us that alcohol tends to make many folks drop their inhibitions!

3. 170 now.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Ingham County Health Department confirmed Monday there are 170 positive cases of COVID-19 linked to East Lansing’s Harper’s Restaurant and Brewpub.

The health department said the 170 cases span across 16 counties and no one has been hospitalized to date.

Harper's closed June 22, shortly after two people tested positive for COVID-19.

The bar opened June 12 when restaurants were allowed to reopen, but patrons packed the sidewalk waiting in line to get in.

4. Wow, thanks for the update.

I'm glad that there were no fatalities, but I can't comprehend why anyone would want to go to a bar during a pandemic.
