Local health officials are now advising those who visited Harper's Restaurant and Brew Pub, near Michigan State University's campus in Lansing, between June 12 and June 22 to self-quarantine for 14 days and get tested for COVID-19. This roots back to June 12-20 when the bar reopened, as Health Officer Linda S. Vail, said.

A MI restaurant has been recently linked to dozens of coronavirus cases, and public health officials are asking anyone who visited between June 12 and June 20 to self-quarantine for two weeks. Alternatively, doctors may also decide to use COVID-19 tests to determine recovery, in which case a patient whose fever and breathing issues have subsided would need to also have 2 consecutive negative virus tests to be considered recovered.

"The multitude of people who were exposed and have become sick at harper's are now going to create you know other spot outbreaks you know reaching out from that", said Vail. The establishment closed on Saturday and deep cleaned the building.

"They need to be diligently compliant with staff mask-wearing", she said. If they notice any symptoms, they should also get tested for COVID-19.

The bar followed safety guidelines for employees, capacity guidelines and table spacing, the statement said.
