A college bar in Michigan has been linked to at least 118 COVID-19 cases in the last two weeks, and customers who were at the establishment as the virus spread say the outbreak could be a "wake-up call" for young people.

Harper's Restaurant and Brewpub in East Lansing, Michigan, has been linked to 104 primary COVID-19 cases and at least 14 secondary contact cases, Ingham County spokesperson Amanda Darche told Insider.

"I think it was a huge wake up call for us that were at Harpers," Blake Cosby, who visited the bar twice in mid-June, told Insider in an Instagram direct message. "We just acted like everything was normal again and didn't take the precautions we should have. Especially with the large rise in cases around the US the last week or so I definitely believe we jumped the gun and reopened too soon."
