Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer apologized after she was caught violating one of her own coronavirus-related orders.
On May 15, the state’s Department of Health and Human Services issued an order disallowing groups of more than six people to be seated together at a restaurant, and each party has to be separated by six feet. However, the governor was caught disregarding that rule on Saturday.
Whitmer was spotted at the Landshark Bar & Grill in East Lansing. A photograph of the group with Whitmer showing tables pushed tougher and no masks being worn was briefly posted on social media. Her chief operating officer, Tricia Foster, was also at the event.
“Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been committed to following public health protocols,” Whitmer said Sunday in a statement. “Yesterday, I went with friends to a local restaurant. As more people arrived, the tables were pushed together. Because we were all vaccinated, we didn’t stop to think about it.”
“In retrospect, I should have thought about it. I am human,” she added. “I made a mistake, and I apologize.” (Read more from “Dem Governor Forced To Apologized for Violating Her Own COVID Rules” HERE)
