An open letter to State Legislatures (MI only)

Support continued mask and distancing mandates

16 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

I am devastated that the Michigan Supreme Court has stripped Governor Whitmer of her emergency powers, specifically the statewide mask mandate for businesses. This is a move completely unsupported by science, and is detrimental to both the residents of our county and state, as well as the economic recovery of our local businesses. Michigan has been one of the leading states in economic recovery precisely because of how well we have managed the COVID-19 pandemic. Our infection rates are far lower than most of the other states in the nation. Our residents have felt much safer going about their daily activities, including shopping at local businesses and going to restaurants because of these state mandates. For Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey to state that Michigan residents need to learn to live with COVID-19 WITHOUT mask mandates is senseless, careless, and uninformed by science. Masks and social distancing ARE the ways we learn to live with COVID-19. And unless this is mandated, far too many people will do their own thing and not wear masks. Far too many businesses will not enforce masking, which endangers not only their clientele, but also their own economic well-being. I write to encourage you to do the right thing and work to bring about continued county and state mandates to wear masks until this pandemic has run its course. My family and I will NOT be going out to eat or frequenting any businesses that are not essential unless we know that mandates are in place, and our safety as well as the safety of all the customers are taken seriously. Do the right thing. Represent your constituents, keep them safe.
