Crossroads, RiverTown malls to reopen today

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Kent County Health Department will be monitoring to see if recent protests lead to a spike in COVID-19 cases, but so far, it’s too early for a definitive answer.

“We know that the incubation period for this particular virus is anywhere from two to 14 days, so we’re kind of in that time frame where we’re still kind of assessing and monitoring to see what our cases are doing,” Kent County Health Department Epidemiologist Brian Hartl told News 8. “I think it’s too early to tell what the impact of these have been on the number of cases in Kent County.”
