On December 7th local time, with the “shocking” COVID-19 infection in Michigan, the governor of Michigan extended the statewide local closure until December 20.
The closure order was extended for 12 days, and the closure measures were originally scheduled to end at 23:59 on Tuesday (December 8).
The relevant regulations involve the closure of in-room dining services in bars and restaurants, restrictions on face-to-face teaching in universities and high schools.
Michigan governor said: “We still need 12 days to determine the impact of the Thanksgiving holiday on the spread of COVID-19. It’s all about protecting our families and frontline workers until we completely eradicate this virus.”
“Data show a slight decrease in daily and cumulative hospitalizations in the COVID-19 emergency department,”
Michigan Health and Hospital Association said in a statement.
As doctors, we believe these (lockdown order) measures are working.”
