We appreciate those who have shown kindness and patience during this time. It is unfortunate that we have to be stern; however, we will not tolerate rude or impatient customers during this time as this delay is through no fault of our own. We are doing the best we can.

Rack storage will open on May 23rd, WITH EXCEPTIONS!
1. Parking spaces are limited because our lot is full with boats. If you have more than one vehicle, you will be asked to park elsewhere.
2. Please be courteous of others and maintain proper distancing while waiting for your boat.
3. Be patient! We anticipate longer wait times and delays because we are short staffed and our crew members are multitasking.

Boyne Thunder Poker Run Announces 2020 Cancellation

The Boyne Thunder Poker Run planning committee, together with the Boyne City Main Street board, announce the cancellation of the 2020 event set to take place July 10 & 11, due to COVID-19 concerns.

Safety and security are the number one priority in the planning of the event. Due to concerns for the wellness of participants, spectators, the large crowds that gather to enjoy the event, and the Northern Michigan communities involved in the event, the decision was made to cancel.

“It is with a heavy heart that the 17th Annual Boyne Thunder Poker Run announces cancellation,” said Bob Alger, Committee Chair. “While it is our great pleasure to bring speed and excitement to Boyne City and Northern Michigan each July, the decision needed to be made to protect all involved and look forward to the 2021 event.”

Organizers hope that the boaters who have enjoyed Boyne City, Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan in past years can find a way to safely do so this summer.

The 2021 Boyne Thunder Poker Run will take place July 9 & 10.

DHD#10's top THREE things you should keep in mind while grocery shopping and buying food items:

1. There is no evidence currently of food, food containers, or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19, as well as no evidence of transmission from a food worker handling food. If you are concerned about contamination of food or food packaging, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water after handling food packaging, after removing food from the packaging, before you prepare food for eating and before you eat.

2. Food workers that directly handle ready-to-eat food, such as salads, cooked meats, smoked fish, desserts, sandwiches, cheese and food cooked in advanced to serve cold, are asked to wear gloves and wash their hands regularly per usual. The FDA food code states that employees may not contact exposed, ready-to-eat foods with their bare hands and shall use suitable utensils.

3. Most establishments have implemented cleaning practices in the pandemic to keep their workers and shoppers as safe as possible. Call your local grocery store if you have questions about the measure they are taking to keep their stores clean.

For more information, please visit www.dhd10.org/coronavirus.



Wear a cloth face covering to slow the spread of coronavirus. Growing evidence suggests the virus can spread:

• Before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) and
• From people who have the virus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic).

Cloth face coverings help prevent spread of COVID-19 in these situations. Learn more about these coverings and how you can make one: https://bit.ly/2Ravt42

The state is reporting that 29,324 specimens have been tested in Michigan as of today, with 7,158 positive, 22,054 negative, and the rest inconclusive. Specimens are not the same thing as number of patients tested, as one patient can produce multiple specimens for testing. Therefore, the number of positive specimens is not the same as the number of positive patients; some people may have had more than one test or been tested at an out-of-state lab. These figures also reflect some - but not all - commercial, hospital, and public health testing in Michigan, with additional labs expected to be added over time. Recovery numbers are not available from the state, in large part because that data is incomplete and difficult to accurately assess (recovery can take 2-6 weeks, so many Michigan cases have not yet reached the recovery stage, and individuals at home may not report their recovery or may have unreported mild cases of the disease).

In the Munson Healthcare system, there have been 758 patients tested as of today, including 64 positive cases, 540 negative cases, and 154 pending. There have been four deaths at Munson hospitals. There are currently 12 positive patients hospitalized at Munson facilities, including two in Cadillac, four in Grayling, and six in Traverse City. In Grand Traverse County, there have now been nine positive cases of coronavirus identified, including a case of community spread (meaning the infection point is unknown). Two of those individuals have died, both in the last 24 hours. The newest positive identification involves an individual with a history of domestic travel, with the Health Department completing a case investigation of that person.

Important disclaimer: The state is releasing daily data on the number of confirmed positive coronavirus cases in Michigan, which we are sharing here. These numbers do not likely reflect the total number of actual cases in the state, as testing is still low and many results are pending. Health officials are advising residents to act as though they may in fact have the virus, as it can be asymptomatic or produce mild symptoms in many patients and can be spread unawares. It’s for these reasons that strict social distancing measures are enacted throughout Michigan at this time.
