Oakland County Executive David Coulter issued the following statement in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order today requiring residents to stay home and stay safe:
“I applaud Gov. Whitmer for taking the bold but necessary action to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities through her executive order. This is our time, and we must meet this challenge with determination, humanity and grace. We’re all in this together and each must do his or her part to stabilize our healthcare system and halt the transmission of the coronavirus.
“After we get through this public health crisis, we likely will be faced with an economic one. Oakland County is already working on plans to assist businesses and employees and we want to assure them we will provide all the resources we can to help them get back on their feet.”
Coulter was set to address Oakland County residents at 1 p.m. today via Facebook Live on the Oakland County Executive Office Facebook page, @OakGov.EO.
