Muskegon County health officials say a resident has tested positive for the new, more contagious variant of COVID-19. The news comes from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, who earlier this week announced that nearly 70 cases of the B.1.1.7 variant of COVID-19, had been confirmed in Michigan, with the first known positive case in Muskegon County.

Kathy Moore is Muskegon County’s Public Health Officer. She says the news is cause for concern, but hope remains as well.
