We know things are hard on adults right now, but maybe even a bit harder for the little ones that are trying to understand what's going on in the world.  With Easter just around the corner, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer wanted to ease the mind of some of the youngest Michiganders out there.

The Governor posted ta video to her Twitter Wednesday telling children that the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy classify as essential workers and that they can continue doing their jobs during the statewide stay-at-home order.

Whitmer, talking from her home with her dog as a video guest, lets kids know that things are going to be "ok". “I wanted to let you know that I have spoken to the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy to let them know that they’re essential workers and they can keep doing their jobs even though the rest of us are staying home,” said Whitmer. “They’re following all the procedures we gave them to make sure they can stay safe and healthy.”

She also made a point to tell the kids to listen to their parents and be sure to wash their hands.
