Residents of 30 East Lansing properties, including MSU Greek houses, ordered to quarantine

EAST LANSING Residents of nearly two dozen fraternity and sorority houses and seven large rental houses in East Lansing have been ordered to quarantine themselves for the next two weeks while health officials try to stop a major COVID-19 outbreak.

Ingham County Health Officer Linda Vail issued an emergency order on Monday pertaining to 30 large houses. She said the outbreak is tied to a lack of cooperation from some students.

"I do not take this lightly, but there is an outbreak centered on Michigan State University, and it is quickly becoming a crisis," Vail said in a news release. "The surge in cases we have seen over the past few weeks is alarming.

Vail said the quarantine order is necessary because officials have been unable to contain COVID-19 cases through comprehensive contact tracing.
