The Grand Traverse County Health Department wants to make the public aware of two locations that a recently confirmed positive COVID-19 case was present at while symptomatic. Following the public health case investigation, it was discovered that there is possibility for community exposure. Please see locations below.
If you were on Delta Flight DL4991 departing from Detroit Metro Airport and landing at Cherry Capital Airport on Monday, March 16th , 2020, you may have been exposed to COVID-19. You should self-quarantine until Monday, March 30th , 2020. If you experiencing COVID-19 type symptoms (fever, cough, body aches, shortness of breath), contact your healthcare provider.
If you were at Target (3130 W South Airport Rd W, Traverse City, MI 49684) on Sunday, March 22nd, 2020 from 5:00 pm-6:00 pm, you should self-monitor for COVID-19 type symptoms (fever, cough, body aches, shortness of breath). If you start experiencing symptoms, contact your healthcare provider.
“Community exposure is a worst-case scenario when conducting case investigations at the health department as it increases the potential for community transmission. We need the community to take the guidance and directives put forth by us and the Governor seriously. If you are sick, stay home. If you are not conducting essential business in the community, stay home. We will undoubtedly see a toll on our Northern Michigan healthcare systems if people do not comply with the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order,” said Wendy Hirschenberger, Grand Traverse County Health Department’s Health Officer.
If you are a Grand Traverse County resident and have further questions or think you may have been exposed, call the Grand Traverse County Health Department 231-995-6801.
