Rep. Andrea Schroeder of Oakland County’s Independence Township today issued a statement on Gov. Whitmer’s extended and expanded ‘stay home’ order related to COVID-19. The order extends through the end of April:
“Sadly, everyone in Oakland County likely knows someone who has had or tragically perished from COVID-19. Our top mission – saving lives and doing all we can to limit the spread of this horrible virus – simply cannot be compromised.
“While holding strong and true to protecting public health, we must explore safe and wise opportunities to help families that are struggling financially stay afloat during this chaotic and challenging time. I will continue to urge the governor to explore best practices from neighboring states that have allowed more people to return to their jobs safely in occupations that do not require contact with customers or co-workers, and can easily follow social distancing guidelines.
“I am ready and willing to continue working on solutions to protect public health and allow Michigan families to get back on their feet financially as soon as possible.”
