Gov. Whitmer Extends Orders for Grocery Stores, Pharmacies and Nursing Homes
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has extended existing safety measures to September 7th which includes two hours a week of reserved shopping time for vulnerable people.
This means grocery stores and pharmacies must continue offering those two hours of shopping time per week only for people most vulnerable to contracting coronavirus. This usually includes the elderly and people with chronic health conditions.
I actually saw some loser complaining about this on social media the other day. He felt it was total crap that he couldn't get what he wanted in the morning because he wasn't elderly and didn't have any chronic health conditions. Are you kidding me? It was just another prime example of how selfish some people can be.
According to ABC12, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, including juvenile justice centers, are required to maintain strong infection control measures and limit entry into their facilities. Nursing homes also are prohibited from evicting residents and taking punitive action against employees who stay home with coronavirus symptoms.
For the past five months, Michiganders have stepped up and done their part to fight COVID-19, and frontline workers in our hospitals, grocery stores, nursing homes, and more have put their own lives on the line to protect our families. Our fight is not over yet, and that is why I am extending these protections to ensure employees, residents and customers are able to work and live in a safe environment.
