Michigan officials: Face mask exempt cards illegitimate
LANSING, Mich. Michigan officials are warning of fake face mask exempt cards that have been circulated by some groups in an effort to bypass wearing face coverings in businesses and locations where they are required amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These groups are trying to spread misinformation about the use of face coverings, and the unfortunate outcome is that they are also endangering the lives of many people, Nessel said. COVID-19 cases have been increasing at a more rapid rate than previous weeks in Michigan and across the country. The chart shows a high risk of COVID-19 transmission when no face coverings are worn, and the least risk of transmission when coverings are worn by both parties.
