Oak Pointe employee who worked June 20 tests positive for COVID-19

An employee at Oak Pointe has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to an email to Oak Pointe Country Club members from Oak Pointe General Manager Bill Durham, the “last time and only time this year the employee was at the club was Saturday, June 20, 2020,” and that the employee worked from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Honors Halfway House. (For non-golfers, a golf course halfway house is designed to give golfers the same service, comfort and quality as the club’s other dining spots.)

At the time of the employee’s six-hour shift, he had no symptoms and was fever-free; however, the “employee decided to get tested after discovering that someone he had come in close contact with outside of the club was showing symptoms.”

Oak Pointe has contacted the Livingston County Health Department, and the employee is in self-quarantine for the next two weeks.

In the email to residents, Durham said that Oak Pointe has implemented “comprehensive service, safety and sanitation protocols,” and that the club amenities and golf areas are “repeatedly cleaned and disinfected.”

“We are committed to open communication and keeping you informed,” Durham wrote in the email. “Our thoughts are with our members and our entire community as we navigate this challenging situation.”

Oak Pointe is one of Livingston County’s largest housing developments. Located in the area along Brighton and Chilson roads in Genoa Township, the development features a private country club, as well as two 18-hole golf courses.
