The stay-at-home order is a mandate by Gov. Whitmer's administration and not just a recommendation, the Genesee County Sheriff keeps reminding the general public.
In a press conference reported by Mid-Michigan Now, Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson laid out the guidelines for protection against COVID-19. He said that it is mandatory for the public to remain at their homes, as the pandemic spreads like wildfire in crowds. The only way to put a stop to this pandemic is to practice social distancing. He also addressed the mobility and financial problems of various segments of the community and the hardships they face in obtaining food and medicines for their family.
“We have set up a Community Care Task Force to make all commodities accessible to the masses," Swanson stated. "There is no shortfall of commodities; the issue here is just that of accessibility, which will be solved by the Community Care Task Force,” he said in the press conference.
The Community Care Task Force can be reached at 810-257-3422 or at Office of Genesee County Sheriff.
