State Rep. Sue Allor, of Wolverine, issued the following statement after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered her Stay Home, Stay Safe executive order:
“I understand how confusing it is right now for our friends, family members, and neighbors in Northeast Michigan as we work to slow the spread of the coronavirus. I know this is unlike anything Michiganders have ever lived through, but I urge you to remain calm. We will get through this together.
“Under the governor’s order, critical operations such as banks, grocery stores and gas stations will remain open, and restaurants will also be allowed to remain open for take-out food services or delivery. You can still go outside and get fresh air, whether it be for a bike ride or a walk, as well as schedule doctor appointments and pick up prescriptions.
“Again, I understand how overwhelming this is for so many of us, but I encourage you to hang tight and do your part to slow the spread of the virus. Regardless of how you feel about the order, we all want the same thing: to put an end to this.”
“Please, please reach out to my office with any questions or concerns. I am here for you, and your health and safety are top priorities of mine as your state representative.”
