State Rep. Mark Huizenga, of Walker, today issued the following statement regarding the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Michigan:
“We have entered a critical period as our state fights against this wave of COVID-19 infection. Hospitals have communicated to us that capacity limits are quickly approaching and these vital facilities will be overwhelmed if this uptick continues. We have to take this seriously.
“So I ask people in the greater Grand Rapids area and across the state to do what they can to slow the spread. I understand this is a very polarizing time in our nation’s history given. People are hesitant to trust what they hear. But opting to discard the advice of the medical professionals who are working tirelessly to combat this virus isn’t the answer. Blatantly and purposefully disregarding the advice of medical professionals doesn’t impact the opposition party – it does potentially impact you and those around you.
“We have seen news reports that a vaccine rollout could be coming soon. We must focus on pushing through to the finish line. Let’s practice good principles and listen to medical professionals while working to protect our communities and our loved ones from COVID-19.”
