On Monday health officials identified 30 exposure properties. As of Thursday, health officials have identified 39 large houses that must mandatory quarantine. Two houses previously on the list had been removed, health officials say.

“The current situation deeply concerns me for the MSU and East Lansing communities,” said Vail. “Beyond that, our inability to contain this extremely high level of transmission will adversely impact other communities, services and businesses in the county. Ingham County has the highest COVID-19 risk in the entire state of Michigan. We are truly in a crisis situation, especially in East Lansing. We must do all we can to contain the outbreak.”

There are 25 fraternity and sorority houses, and 14 rental houses on the quarantine list.
