MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – Parents gathered to encourage officials to mandate mask use in Macomb County schools.
The group of parents, called the Macomb County Parents for Safe In Person School, are organizing to put pressure on the Macomb County Health Department to make a universal decision that follows the science.
Health officials and research indicates proper mask wearing is one additional layer that can be successfully used to deter coronavirus from spreading.
The Macomb County Health Department defers all comments and accountability to Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, who then defers to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to make a decision.
