Metro Detroit counties release sites tied to coronavirus cases
Oakland and Washtenaw county health officials Fridayissued a list of dates and locations as a part of an effort to identify close contacts of three Oakland County men who have tested positive for the coronavirus.
State officials confirmed Thursday night that 10 new individuals have tested positive, bringing the statewide total to 12 and triggering the closure of the state's K-12 schools and prompting colleges and universities to suspend in-person classes.
"Out of an abundance of caution, anyone that was present at the following locations on the dates and times listed below should be alert for symptoms of COVID-19," the release reads. "Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If any develop, stay at home and promptly call a healthcare provider or hospital prior to arriving so that the appropriate preventive measures can be put in place."
Washtenaw County officials said two cases of the disease have been confirmed in their county. They said a woman and a man were likely exposed through international and domestic travel respectively. One traveled through Europe and the other to New York, according to officials.
