The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has announced that individuals are now subject to a $1,000 fine if they do not properly comply with social distancing edicts made by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
This announcement means that an individual could be fined if they come within six feet of another person in public. So-called experts are cheering on this ghastly infringement upon basic rights, as the lab coats usher in the demise of the American way of life.
“A person can have coronavirus without knowing it,” said MDHHS Director Robert Gordon. “They can spread the disease to others who can spread it to others. The only way to stop the spread is social distancing. A civil penalty and potential licensing actions send a strong message to Michiganders that social distancing is essential to saving lives.”
“There is not a vaccine or a recognized treatment for COVID-19 and our healthcare system is being severely taxed by this pandemic,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health.
“We need people to heed the Stay Home, Stay Safe order as well as other orders issued by the Governor to protect the health and safety of all Michiganders,” he added.
According to WXYZ-7 Detroit, the Democrats in charge are attempting to intimidate Michigan residents into following Whitmer’s edicts by threatening these Draconian punishments. Her executive orders effectively shut down public life completely throughout the state:
- Executive Order 2020-11 temporarily prohibits large assemblages and events and temporarily closes schools.
- Executive Order 2020-20 places temporary restrictions on the use of places of public accommodation.
- Executive Order 2020-21 temporarily restricts gatherings and travel and prohibits in-person work that is not necessary to sustain or protect life.
Whitmer wants to keep her state shut down until June 9, which would cause incredible economic damage in a key battleground state heading into November’s presidential election.
“Since Michigan announced our first confirmed cases of COVID-19 three weeks ago, we have taken some of the most aggressive measures in the country to mitigate the spread of the virus and protect Michigan families,” Whitmer said on Thursday.
“Today’s action will allow my administration to respond more effectively to every facet of this crisis. During this time, it’s crucial that Michiganders continue to stay home and keep their distance from others. We will get through this together,” she added.
She formalized her request to the Republican-dominated state legislature for her lock-down order and emergency powers to be kept in place for months.
“To meet the steep, varied, and ongoing demands created by the COVID-19 pandemic, my administration must continue to use the full range of tools available to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our state and its residents. I welcome you and your colleagues’ continued partnership in fighting this pandemic,” Whitmer wrote in her letter addressed to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield.
Because of her authoritarian tendencies, Whitmer is now a leading candidate to be the vice presidential choice for Democrat presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden. Law enforcement is not ruling out criminal penalties for individuals who refuse to follow Whitmer’s commands as well.
Virginia’s Ralph Northam Caught At Beach Without Facemask, Social Distancing
Northam has mandated strict coronavirus restrictions.
A new photo has emerged of controversial Virginia Governor Ralph Northam inspecting safety measures while inspecting a public beach at Virginia Beach. In the photo, Northam is neither wearing a facemask or keeping six feet of distance away from other people, as suggested by social distancing guidelines.
Northam was caught engaging in the hypocritical conduct on Saturday.

As Governor, he’s urged Virginians to wear face masks and to maintain social distance from others. The state is currently slated to keep its stay-at-home restrictions in place for a lengthier duration than other states, with one public health official claiming that the state’s reopening would be a “two year affair.”
The Governor’s staff issued an excuse for his irresponsible conduct on Saturday, claiming ignorance towards the possibility of entering close proximity with other people.
JUST IN: Statement from @GovernorVA on not wearing a mask today while in Virginia Beach. “The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible. He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.” @NBC12

This isn’t the first report suggesting that Governor Northam is engaging in rank hypocrisy amidst widespread disruption to the lives of everyday citizens during the coronavirus epidemic. Multiple witnesses in Dare County, North Carolina, have claimed that either Northam or his personal family members have violated both county and state stay-at-home restrictions through travel to Northam’s luxurious oceanfront vacation home. Northam denied the reports, but is yet to answer why cars with his distinguishable license plates have been arriving at the gated community where his vacation home is.
The beachfront incident is perhaps the latest corroborating evidence of hypocrisy and an elitist double standard. Luxury and leisure for me, and restrictions for thee?
