EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Health officials are strongly recommending that Michigan State University students living on or near the school’s East Lansing campus self-quarantine immediately because of an outbreak of COVID-19. The Ingham County Health Department says at least a third of the 342 people affiliated with the university who have tested positive for the virus since Aug. 24 attended parties or social gatherings. At least one third of those gatherings were associated with fraternities or sororities. The health department says that in the three weeks prior to the surge in cases, only 23 people affiliated with the university had tested positive. The state has had more than 110,800 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and more than 6,500 deaths from the disease since the pandemic started.

CASEVILLE, Mich. (AP) — Police say a 14-year-old deer hunter who possibly fell asleep in a farm field was killed when he was run over by a corn harvester in Michigan’s Thumb region. Emergency workers were called about 9 a.m. Saturday to the cornfield in a rural area near the Huron County city of Caseville after a farm worker spotted the boy soon after accidentally driving over him. The county sheriff’s office says the boy from the nearby city of Elkton had been dropped off earlier for deer hunting at the field and might have fallen asleep.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Wildlife officials say Michigan’s deer herd is in good shape and predict a strong fall hunting season. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ annual forecast says conditions across the state are as good as in 2019 or better, thanks to a mild winter and plentiful food. The season began with this weekend’s Liberty Hunt for young people and hunters with disabilities. The DNR says a number of rules have been revised to make them more understandable, grant more flexibility and provide more value for time and money.
