The Central Michigan District Health Department says at least two people who reported being at O’Kelly’s Sports Bar and Grille in Mt. Pleasant on October 31 have tested positive for the coronavirus. During case investigations, the health department determined that employees and patrons who were there that day may have been exposed. They say more cases could be seen in coming days.
The health department is advising employees and patrons of the business to monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 through November 14. Symptoms can appear between two and 14 days after exposure.
