Flint Mayor Asking Residents to Implement Self Shelter in Place
Mayor Sheldon Neeley is asking all residents to take the initiative to shelter in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and adhere to those guidelines.
This comes with the announcement of new statistics this afternoon. As of today, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services says there are now 14 positive COVID-19 cases in Genesee County and 1,035 positive cases in Michigan.
Mayor Neeley said in a statement, “To protect your own health and the health of others, I ask everyone to please begin self-imposing shelter in place guidelines immediately. If you need groceries or medicine, of course you should get them. If you do not need to leave the house, don’t. Stay home. Stay safe.”
Mayor Neeley already declared a state of emergency on March 12th and closed City Hall to the public March 17th. For more information visit the city's COVID-19 Information Page.
