(WXYZ) — The Washtenaw County Health Department is warning about COVID-19 exposure at the Brown Jug restaurant and the Chapala Mexican Restaurant.

They are warning anyone who visited the Brown Jug on October 1-3 and October 6, and anyone who visited Chapala on October 1 to monitor themselves for symptoms and to stay away from others as much as possible for 14 days after last visiting either restauarant.

They are also advised to seek COVID-19 testing.

“In most situations, we can contact individuals exposed to COVID-19 directly,” says Jimena Loveluck, MSW, health officer for Washtenaw County. “Unfortunately, with the number of positive cases that report visiting each of these establishments at crowded times, there is a possibility of widespread, public exposure.”

Officials say they have traced 13 cases to the restaurants on the dates in question.
