Daughter of Michigan coronavirus nursing home victim Jamie Nicholson weighs in on pandemic response from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Friday called for school sports to halt games for two weeks to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
But the governor’s request was not an order – so the head of the state’s high school sports association says the games will go on as scheduled, unless local districts opt out.
"We’re going to play two days of basketball and really make no changes for the spring," Mark Uyl, executive director of the Michigan High School Athletic Association said in response to Whitmer, according to the Detroit Free Press.
