(LANSING, Mich.) Wednesday March 10th, marks the one year anniversary of Michigan's first confirmed COVID-19 cases. Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist, are asking Michigan residents to remember those lost to COVID-19. People are urged to turn the lights on outside of their homes from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday night. “We’ve had a difficult year and lost so many fellow Michiganders, “said Governor Whitmer. “On Wednesday, Lieutenant Governor Gilchrist and I urge everyone to turn on their porch lights for an hour, so that we can remember those we’ve lost and remind ourselves that even in times of darkness, we’re in this together. As we mark this occasion, we also look towards the light at the end of the tunnel. We have three safe, effective vaccines, all miracles of science, that will help protect you, your family, and others from COVID and help us get our country and the economy back to normal.”
