Remember when we were told we needed two weeks to slow the spread? That was back in March.
Here we are nearly ten months later and some states are enacting new COVID rules.
In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer just announced a slew of new COVID related rules.
The Detroit News reports:
Gov. Whitmer closing high schools, colleges, in-person dining, casinos, movie theaters
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced wide-ranging new restrictions limiting gatherings at high schools, colleges and restaurants Sunday night to combat what she described as the “worst moment” yet in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new policies will temporarily halt in-person instruction at high schools and colleges, indoor dine-in service at restaurants and bars, and high school athletics as well as close some businesses, including movie theaters, bowling alleys and casinos.
The restrictions, imposed through a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services order, will take effect Wednesday and be in place until they end on Dec. 8. Under the order, indoor residential gatherings will be limited to two households at any one time.
“The situation has never been more dire,” Whitmer said Sunday. “We are at the precipice, and we need to take some action.”
The state’s public health code allows the Michigan health department to “prohibit the gathering of people for any purpose” and to “establish procedures” to ensure the “continuation of essential public health services and enforcement of health laws.”
People have had it. This is how you can tell. Sara Carter reports:
