Whitmer asks Michiganders to turn on outside lights for an hour to remember COVID victims


Michigan’s Governor is asking the state to observe an anniversary Wednesday night, March 10, with porch lights.

Governor Whitmer and Lt. Governor Gilchrist are marking Wednesday as the one-year anniversary of the first cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in the state.

To honor all of those who have been lost, the governor’s office is asking all Michiganders to turn on the lights outside of their homes between 8 and 9 pm Wednesday night. Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist adds “The simple act of turning on our lights is a way to remember and honor those we have lost and show that we’re all in this together and we will emerge from this crisis, together.”
