Gov. Whitmer just announced that all K-12 schools in the State of Michigan will be closed from Monday, March 16th – April 5th. This comes just moment after the state announced they have 12 confirmed Coronavirus cases.
“This is a necessary step to protect our kids, our families, and our overall public health,” Whitmer said.
“I am working with partners across state government to ensure educators, parents, and students have the support they need during this time, and to ensure our children who rely on school for meals have access to food.”
“I know this will be a tough time, but we’re doing this to keep the most people we can safe. I urge everyone to make smart choices during this time and to do everything they can to protect themselves and their families.” – Whitmer.
