Whitmer asks for 2-week pause of Michigan youth sports, indoor dining

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is calling on Michigan high schools to offer remote education for two weeks after spring break, youth sports to pause all activities for two weeks and people to avoid eating indoors at restaurants for the same amount of time. 

She stressed this is a request, not a mandate. But she said people taking action on their own is the only way Michigan can curb a huge rise in COVID-19 cases in the state. 

“We all know what works, and this has to be a team effort. We have to do this together — lives depend on it,” Whitmer said Friday at a news conference.

“This is my ask to you, the people of Michigan. Please redouble your efforts on these fronts for the next couple of weeks.”
