CMDHD Reports Possible Covid-19 Exposure at Soaring Eagle Resort and Casino Outdoor Concert

Central Michigan District Health Department is reporting a group of COVID-19 cases stemming from an outdoor concert in Isabella County.

Cmdhd LogoMore than 10,000 attended the outdoor Miranda Lambert concert at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort on July 24. Six people that went to the concert tested positive for COVID-19.

The health department says two people were considered contagious while at the concert, and may have spread the virus.

“We definitely have a concern that there could be more cases that we haven’t yet identified,” said Central Michigan District Health Department Medical Director Dr. Jennifer Morse.

It has not been confirmed if those that tested positive were also vaccinated.

Dr. Morse said this outbreak is an example for people to remember that COVID-19 is still an issue as we see the number of cases rise again.

“We’ve had reports of several other events throughout the state of Michigan that’s had situations like this happening,” she said. “This has really been the first one that’s been close to this area.”

The health department asks if you were at the concert on July 24, monitor for symptoms, get tested, and wear a face mask in public areas.
