LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Governor Gretchen Whitmer says she’s not about to announce new mask mandates in Michigan.
That’s despite new guidance from the CDC that people should mask up while indoors in areas that are COVID-19 hotspots.
“I do not anticipate another pandemic order,” she said, “not in the near future and maybe not ever.”
Whitmer and Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist both wore masks at an economic development announcement in Detroit. Whitmer said they were following the advice of top medical advisor Doctor Joneigh Khaldun.
