Michigan’s Corona-Crisis Update

Michigan’s Corona-Crisis Update

Michigan is now below the national average and ranks 28th among the 50 states when it comes to per-capita Coronavirus cases. 

Good news, but will the cases go up? 

Well, remember our state was one of the last to lift its stay-at-home orders; Michigan restaurants and bars only opened June 1 and June 8, respectively. 

So, when folks resumed their normal activities coronavirus cases began to go up throughout the state. As a matter of fact there’s been a pretty significant increase in cases since the end of June which most credit to increased travel and socializing. Simply put: lifting the stay-at-home order meant people were moving around more, and that made it easier to transmit the disease.

That leads to our conclusion: The challenge for our great state is now attempting to keep some semblance of regular life while keeping this virus under control. Hand washing, face masks, and limiting travel will help.
