On Sunday, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.) announced new rules meant to limit the number of indoor gatherings. Whitmer said indoor gatherings would be limited to 10 people from two households and outdoor gatherings will be limited to 25.
In the spring, we listened to public health experts and saved thousands of lives together.
I am personally asking each and every one of you to channel that same energy and do everything in your power to protect our communities from this virus and save lives again.
