TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — The Grand Traverse County Health Department announced Wednesday 8 businesses in Traverse City are now flagged as potential COVID-19 exposure sites.

A contact tracing effort starting outside the county followed the path of a group of patrons who later tested positive for the virus:

Thursday, June 18th:
Mari Vineyards from 1 - 2 p.m.
Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery from 2 - 3 p.m.
Bowers Harbor Vineyards from 3:30 - 4:30 pm

“This is a sobering reminder that the virus is still circulating in Michigan and Northern Michigan. We need to continue to be vigilant and practice social distancing, wearing a mask and being mindful that this is far from over,” said Health Officer, Wendy Hirschenberger. “Just because we have reopened, does not mean we can relax our protective actions. Anyone could have COVID-19 and you might now know because some people with coronavirus are not yet sick, and some people never have signs of the disease. I strongly urge everyone to take precautions so that we can keep infections down and keep businesses open."

If you were at these locations during these times or shortly after, you should self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for the next 14 days. If you develop symptoms, please call your health care professional. Employees of the listed establishments concerned with extended exposure can call the Grand Traverse County Health Department Communicable Disease line at 231-995-6801.
