NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - Between February 7 and April 7, a total of 389 COVID-19 cases were confirmed in Marquette County.

22 of those, which makes up 6 percent, were hospitalized according to the Marquette County Health Department.

Marquette County Medical Director Dr. Lorinser said these numbers are alarming and being vaccinated is the easiest way to prevent the virus and being hospitalized.

“Please get your vaccine. The people that are getting hit are the younger people that haven’t been vaccinated and the older you get, the worst the risk is. The risk of the vaccine is nowhere near anything of having the regular illness,” Dr. Lorinser said.

Anyone 16 and over is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and can sign up through the Health Department.
