This also affected Michigan because once that jazz player slapped hands with my neighbor, the town went on lock down and their dumb asses didn’t stay quarantined so they made a lot of people mad too

And they tested everyone. That's the really important part. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear as if anyone was doing the sleuthing to discover all the other people that had contact with the infected players.
