Michigan Governor Whitmer Seeks Schools Closure, Postponement Of Youth Sports

Published

on

Michigan is currently going through a very bad phase of COVID-19 as infections are rising in the state. The reason for the rise in cases is attributed to the coronavirus variants that are more transmissible than the normal variant of the virus. Just when things were finally getting better, Michigan has given a reality check to the entire country. 

As the cases were slowly coming down, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer eased the restrictions that were imposed on restaurants and bars. However, the easing of restrictions seems to have backfired now as the cases are going up at an alarming rate. She has now asked for the closure of schools and postponement of youth sports by two weeks.

Interestingly, this time around, she has imposed any restrictions but asked for voluntary cooperation from school officials and the people of Michigan. Gretchen was the one who had imposed harsh restrictions during the first wave. Her reluctance to do it again seems very odd. 

Governor Whitmer Asks People To Come Forward For Vaccination

If there is one possible way to bring down the COVID-19 curve in Michigan, that would be vaccination. People are coming out in large numbers to take the COVID vaccine but it is still not enough. Whitmer asked the people of Michigan to come forward and get vaccinated. Even though the vaccination is already taking place at a good speed, it is currently losing the race to COVID due to the increased spread of the virus in the past few weeks. 

Experts would suggest bringing back the restrictions but Gretchen seems to be hesitant about it due to its negative impact on the economy. She urged people to take the vaccine and help Michigan plateauing the COVID curve. “We have to do this together. Lives depend on it. We’re going to have some tough weeks ahead. So I’m asking everyone — please, take this seriously,” Whitmer said.

Governor Blames Coronavirus Variants For Rise In Cases

At present, Michigan is seeing a constant rise in the seven-day average of daily cases which looks like the sign for another wave in the state. If the wave hits Michigan like last time, everything including the vaccination drive would be severely affected by it. Whitmer feels her team has done everything right to limit the spread of the virus and blamed the various variants of the virus for the sudden rise in cases. She wants people to understand that the situation is not getting any better and expect them to act accordingly. 

With the vaccination drive going strong, people had become complacent and were violating the CDC guidelines like masking and social distancing. The people are also going through COVID fatigue wherein people are getting tired of the restrictions and various health measures.  

Whitmer expects cooperation from her people as things are going to get tougher in the near future of Michigan. She said: “It is less of a policy problem that we have and more of a compliance and variant issue that we are confronting as a state. At this point, we think it’s important that people understand how very serious this moment is.”

Whitmer’s Schools’ Closure Demand Draws Criticism

The students have been affected very badly due to COVID-19. The quality of learning through the online mode is below the in-person mode of learning. In Michigan, schools have finally opened after a gap of more than a year. With the rise in cases, Whitmer has requested for closure of schools for some time. Robert McCann, executive director of the K-12 Alliance of Michigan was not happy with the request from Whitmer. 

He said: “Educators have been focused on doing what is best for our students’ learning and social growth. We’ve relied on health experts to guide us on the safest way to do that and any shift from that or expectation that educators alone can make those decisions in not the right approach.” 

Whitmer is also not wrong about asking for the schools to close down as the rising cases also pose a threat to the children. With so many students coming to school, the scope of virus transmission is also wide.
