LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed two new executive orders on Saturday that extend protections for frontline workers at grocery stores, pharmacies and long-term care facilities amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. One of the new orders, 2020-178, focuses on protecting customers and staff members at grocery stores and pharmacies. Frontline workers in our hospitals, grocery stores, nursing homes, and more have put their own lives on the line to protect our families,” Whitmer said. Still, the governor’s office says that this week Whitmer is reviewing recommendations made by the state’s Nursing Homes COVID-19 Preparedness Task Force and will implement any changes following her review.

Film shows nightmare of an emergency room in Italy
So it was more frightening, definitely.Achilli's film, Inside Italy's COVID War, is being shown on Frontline at 10 p.m. Tuesday on most PBS stations.

Since she's from Italy and her father still lives there, the coronavirus story was more personal. A picture the doctor took of an exhausted colleague circulated widely online, and Achilli reached out before she even traveled to Italy. Mangiatordi's cooperation, and that of her colleagues and family, enabled Frontline to tell the broader story through a personal lens.
