The Department of Health in northwest Michigan said other state health officials said several people tested positive “after attending the Torch Lake sandbank celebrations during the July 4th vacation,” the ministry said Friday.
Those who tested positive could not identify everyone with whom they had contact. “Therefore, we would like to draw the public’s attention to the fact that the participants are at risk of exposure and that further cases may arise in the coming days.” Health Department said.
“If you were at the Torch Lake Sandbar Party on the weekend of July 4th, look for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and check whether symptoms should develop or whether you are at high risk of exposure due to the proximity to COVID-19 others were exposed or uncovered. “
Those who get symptoms usually get sick two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, fever, cough, loss of taste and smell, and diarrhea.
“Anyone who monitors themselves for possible exposure to COVID-19 should stay away from others as much as possible and limit travel,” said the health agency.
“If you monitor yourself and develop symptoms, you should first call your family doctor for testing. If you don’t have a family doctor, please call northwest Michigan health office at 1-800-432-4121.”
