“we believe that this mandate from the [Michigan Department of Health and Human Services] is unnecessary and should not only be reconsidered, but overturned”
Hasn’t Gretchen Whitmer been caught violating her own COVID policies? Why is anyone listening to her edicts anymore?

UMich student athletes not happy with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s draconian COVID-19 restrictions
Student-athletes at the University of Michigan created a petition calling for the reconsideration of a mandated two-week quarantine.
The petition, created by University of Michigan student-athlete Chrisitan Hubaker, calls for the overturning of a state mandate, which requires a blanket quarantine of all Michigan athletics.
“While we, the student-athletes at the University of Michigan, understand the severity of this virus and take it very seriously, we believe that this mandate from the [Michigan Department of Health and Human Services] is unnecessary and should not only be reconsidered, but overturned,” the petition states.
The petition states that a shutdown of athletics should have come from the University of Michigan, not local or state authorities.
“We trust the guidance and leadership of those in charge of the health and safety of Michigan student-athletes,” states the petition. “Given the university’s knowledge of the situation surrounding the athletic department, should a total shutdown have been necessary, it should have come from the University of Michigan leaders.”
Local health authorities issued a mandatory two-week quarantine period for student-athletes, coaches, and staff of all athletics programs due to an outbreak of a new strand of a coronavirus.
Hubaker stated in the petition that the quarantine measures are unnecessary due to the testing and prevention methods that the athletic department has been enforcing since the start of the pandemic. Currently, athletes are required to test six times a week.
The petition also states that the student-athletes have been diligent about following these guidelines and that this quarantine order will punish those who have done nothing wrong.
Funny, I don’t see any social distancing happening here:
