After a spike of 342 positive tests in people associated with Michigan State University in East Lansing, Ingham County health officials are calling for all M-S-U students to quarantine in place for 14 days.  Right now, it’s a recommendation, but it may become mandatory if cases continue to rise. Students are supposed to remain at home except to attend in-person instruction, labs and intercollegiate athletic training.  The quarantine runs through the 26th.

 

State health officials have reported a total of 2,005 new confirmed cases on Friday and Saturday.  They’ve stopped issuing reports on Sunday. There were 13 new deaths over the same period. There are now 111,524 confirmed cases since the crisis began.  Of those 21,132 are active.  Death toll stands at 6,591. The seven-day running average for new cases is up again to 760.  Average for deaths is up one to eight.  M-I Safe Start Map which is still based on data from last Saturday shows a state-wide positive test rate running average at 3.5%, which is just slipping into the low risk zone and the average new case per capita rate state-wide is at 47.6 per million, which is at the low end of the high risk zone.
