Joint Statement from U.P. Mayors Regarding Seasonal Residents Returning to Upper Peninsula

SAINT IGNACE, MI – The mayor’s of Saint Ignace and the City of Saint Ignace, MichiganMackinaw Island issued a joint statement today concerning those who are planning to return to the area during the national heath crisis.

Their statement reads as follows:

We fully support the advisories and recommendations recently issued by the medical experts from the LMAS District Health Department, encouraging seasonal residents to postpone their return to the Upper Peninsula, if it is not entirely necessary.

Our medical facilities and resources are limited, and an influx of seasonal residents at this time could cause significant issues in our ability to effectively treat our close-knit communities.

If it is necessary to return to the region at this time, we are strongly urging seasonal residents to adhere to the self-quarantine protocols outlined by the LMAS District Health Department. These critical steps will combat the spread of COVID-19 throughout the region, ultimately preserving the health and well-being of all who love this special place – from permanent and seasonal residents to visiting guests.
