Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Expands Mask Mandate to 2-Year-Olds

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) doubled down on her restrictive coronavirus strategy by requiring young children to wear masks.

Michigan Capitol Confidential reported the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), headed by Elizabeth Hertel, who just returned from an Alabama beach vacation, issued the order.

Children under the age of 5 had previously been exempt. But now, kids at camps and child care must be covered.

“A good faith effort is made to ensure that children aged 2 to 4 years wear a mask when participating in gatherings,” the order said.

The mandate noted at this point, children under 2 are exempt. It expires May 25.

The order came days after Hertel arrived back from a spring break vacation to Gulf Shores, Alabama and another top Whitmer aide, Tricia Foster, was found to have vacationed in Siesta Key, Florida.

Critics questioned whether there were different rules for top officials. Whitmer responded, “What directors do on their personal time is their business, so long as they are safe.”

On Thursday, the governor appeared on MSNBC and blamed the Republican-controlled legislature and even former President Donald Trump himself for the situation.

When asked whether she had the “political ability” to shut the state down again, Whitmer responded, “I was sued by the Republican legislature here in Michigan. I lost in the Supreme Court. It was a Republican-dominated Supreme Court. I lost some of those executive powers.”

She continued, “We do retain some powers, but we are so incredibly divided after, I think, the politics of the last 14 months.”

She added the state has “some of the strongest protocols in place.”

Yet, virus cases continue to grow.

WJRT reported:

After two days of declines, the number of new COVID-19 cases in Michigan bounced back with the second highest daily increase on record and the largest one-day total so far this year.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported 8,955 new COVID-19 illnesses on Friday for a total of 779,777. Only the 9,779 new cases on Nov. 20 was a higher daily increase for the state.

State health officials reported 40 deaths attributed to the coronavirus on Friday, which increase Michigan’s total COVID-19 deaths to 16,771.

The news station said 2.393 million people, or 29.6 percent of the population, have been vaccinated.

Gretchen Whitmer Health Director Disregards Governor’s Spring Break Warning, Travels to Alabama

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) health director, Elizabeth Hertel, was the second senior administration official to travel out of state for spring break last week.

Hertel (pictured), who heads the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), traveled with her family to Gulf Shores, Alabama, but according to MIRS News, she “was regularly updated on Michigan’s growing COVID-19 case numbers and was available to issue any new public health orders, if necessary.”

MIRS said Hertel would have legally been able to issue orders while not in the state, apparently even from the beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

MDHHS spokesman Bob Wheaton told the publication “the department does not discuss the Director’s personal schedule.”

On April 2, just days before spring break for many students, Whitmer told the media, “Here’s what I know: The Number 1 state with the most variants is Florida and the Number 2 state is Michigan right now.”

She acknowledged there is “a lot of travel back and forth between the states” at this time of year.

“Yes, I am concerned, and I think it’s a concern no matter what,” she said of travel between states.

Whitmer’s office refused to tell Breitbart News if the governor was proud of her top appointees ignoring her recommendation for Michigan residents not to travel for spring break, nor whether the actions by Hertel and Tricia Foster, Whitmer’s Chief Operating Officer, should be interpreted by Michiganders as a signal that Whitmer’s suggestions should not be taken seriously.

Foster was caught by Breitbart News last Friday after the COO posted photos and comments on her Facebook page about her travels to warmer environs.

One friend commented that she thought she saw the senior Michigan government official on the beach in Siesta Key:

“I swear I saw you walking today,” the person said on a purported Foster Facebook post containing several beach photos from earlier this week.

“Likely,” Foster responded.

When asked where one of her absent family members was — apparently her son — Foster responded, “home with covid [coronavirus].”

She added, “Missing his [senior] trip to the Bahamas so planned girls plan b 24 hours before flight.”

When Breitbart News inquired about Foster’s travel, Whitmer’s office did not respond.

Press Secretary Bobby Leddy later falsely smeared Breitbart News as a “garbage white nationalist website,” but did not dispute the facts in the story.
