TRAVERSE CITY, MICH. — The Grand Traverse County Health Department has listed eight local establishments as possible contact exposure sites for COVID-19.
According to a June 24 release, the sites — including wineries, bars, a food truck court and a restaurant — were visited on the nights of June 18 and 19 by a group of patrons, several of whom later tested positive for coronavirus.
The dates, times and locations of possible exposure are:
Thursday, June 18:
Mari Vineyards from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Bowers Harbor Vineyards from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Amical from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Friday, June 19:
Rooftop bar at Hotel Indigo from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Little Fleet from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Low Bar from 10:45 to 11:30 p.m.
Kilkenny’s Irish Public House from 11:45 p.m. to 1:45 a.m.
In a post on its Facebook page, the health department said the patrons admitted to not practicing social distancing or prevention measures during those visits.
In the release, officials urged anyone who may have been at those locations during the listed time periods or shortly after to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days following the possible exposure. Anyone who is self-monitoring should also keep away from family and close contacts as much as possible, the release said.
“This is a sobering reminder that the virus is still circulating in Michigan and Northern Michigan,” health officer Wendy Hirschenberger said in the release. “We need to continue to be vigilant and practice social distancing, wearing a mask and being mindful that this is far from over.”
