Press Release

Following Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement that she is issuing a “Stay at Home” order for the state of Michigan, Congressman Andy Levin (MI-09) made the following statement:

“From the start of this crisis, Governor Whitmer has been strong and steady. She has often been among the first governors to see what was coming and to take action, but she has insisted on taking each step based on the evidence and the best medical advice. Epidemiologists are clear that we have reached a point where we Michiganders must limit any and all contact just as much as we possibly can to stem community spread of COVID-19. I fully support the Governor’s action and encourage all Michiganders to stay out of circulation. Ironically, our love for each other requires us to stay apart, for now.”
