Or, in other words, because of 0.00012015% of Michigan’s population?
Tonight, I announced that in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan, I am ordering the closure of all K-12 school buildings to students starting Monday, March 16 until Sunday, April 5. School buildings are scheduled to reopen on Monday, April 6.

I hope Gretchen is up to the task of delivering 380,587 Breakfasts, 750,095 Lunches, and 18,050 Afterschool Snacks for the next 14 working days because how is them chil’ens going to fight off the Kung Flu if they’re malnourished?
Knee-jerk much, nitWhitmer?
Anyone thinking like me???? Isn't it a wrong message to send, closing schools? Shouldn't these weeks be better spent teaching personal/public hygiene? What about some geography involving past Pandemics? Why not give all kids a spritzer bottle with a pinesol mixture and rags, let them loose cleaning their workspaces, hallways, doorknobs, etc of their school like Japan does. Teach kids how soap and water hand-washing singing Happy Birthday, is the way to go. On the other hand, what a great 3 weeks to deprogram your kids. Give them 3 weeks of read'n, writing, and rithmatic and watch their teachers go bonkers when they return.
But, that is Japan, and the Japanese are nothing like the pansy, indoctrinated, Xennial and Millennial mushmind parents raising chil'en in America, today.
Seriously good ideas.
Put the little ragamuffins to work. Not to mention teach them how to care for the elderly as low risk caregivers!
