• The Savoy Bar, Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan

If you visited any of these locations between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. on

Anyone experiencing one or more of these symptoms should immediately quarantine
themselves and seek testing:

• Fever. Take a temperature twice a day, AM and PM
• Coughing
• Headache
• Sore throat
• Runny nose or congestion
• Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
• Loss of taste or smell

CCHD says they will continue its investigation into the spread of COVID-19 and may contact you
if you are identified as a close contact to those affected by the virus. With evidence of
community spread, community mitigation strategies and restrictions are in place to slow
the spread of the virus as much as possible. Please take every possible opportunity to
practice prevention and social distancing.

Please note, receiving a COVID-19 test after an exposure does not mean that you will not
develop symptoms or test positive at a future time within your 14-day period. You can
contact the CCHD with questions at (906) 635-1566, option 6, and leave a message. Call
911 if there is an emergency.
