The Ingham County Health Department is asking patrons who visited Harper's Restaurant & Brew Pub between June 12 and June 20 to self-quarantine and report cases of Covid-19, the department said in a statement.Of the more than 100 positive cases, 12 are from secondary transmission, Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail said Monday night. The number of positive cases linked to the bar has risen rapidly since it was first reported Tuesday. Initially, 14 positive cases were reported, that jumped to 34 on Wednesday. By Saturday, that had risen to about 85, Vail told CNN.

(Although Bill DeBlasio has cited Harper’s as a reason why he’s keeping New York City’s dining rooms closed.) And the owners can. From MichiganBridge:

But Riley told Bridge she doesn’t want the testing to stop. It’s important, she said, to understand the scope of the infection among the young adults who rushed back to Harper’s Restaurant and Brewpub when it reopened. “I say we have to get the numbers. If we don’t have the numbers, we don’t know what’s out there.”

On Fox News Tuesday, [Texas Lt. Governor Dan] Patrick accused Fauci of being wrong “every time, on every issue,” but Patrick did not offer any evidence. “I don’t need his advice anymore,” Patrick. “We will listen to a lot of science. We will listen to a lot of doctors. And Gov. Abbott, myself and other state leaders will make the decision. No thank you, Dr. Fauci.” His statement comes as new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in Texas have soared to record levels. In a Tuesday hearing, Fauci that the country’s daily case count could more than double if “this does not turn around.”...“Fauci said today that he is concerned about states like Texas that skipped over certain things. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Patrick told Ingraham. “We haven’t skipped over anything. The only thing I am skipping over is listening to him.”

If you listen to Patrick and not to Fauci, it’s not anyone’s fault but your own.
