The Upper Peninsula of Michigan reportedly had its first presumptive case of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chippewa County just a couple days ago.
However, WLUC-TV6 has reported that the Marquette County Health Department (MCHD) announced in a press release they have their first confirmed positive case of the Coronavirus Tuesday afternoon.
TV6 said MCHD discovered and confirmed the case through commercial lab testing.
MCHD has stated that the victim is an adult male who has had a recent history of domestic travel and have been through international airports. The man has been in home isolation since the testing.
The only prior, ‘presumptive’ COVID-19 case was in aforementioned Chippewa County. The county’s health department believes that case’s risk to the public is minimal.
MCHD strongly recommends the community to follow the guidelines from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s ‘Stay at Home/Stay Safe’ order along with social distancing.
TV6 said in their post that if anyone is mildly ill from symptoms, they can safely recover at home. However, if those symptoms get worse, please contact your local health provider immediately.
