The Michigan Nurses Association, the largest organization representing Michigan’s registered nurses, today expressed support for the extension of MDHHS’s three-week “pause” of certain indoor activities by 12 days.
The following statement can be attributed to Jamie Brown, RN, a critical care nurse who is president of the Michigan Nurses Association.
“Nurses support these temporary pandemic limitations because saving lives must come first. Nurses are exhausted and our hospital systems are on the brink of being overwhelmed. We desperately need the public to realize that COVID-19 remains a deadly, unpredictable disease that strikes all ages – and to take appropriate steps to keep themselves and others safe. That means wearing your mask, avoiding indoor gatherings, and washing your hands. We appreciate the governor’s leadership and urge everyone to follow these rules to protect themselves, their families and their communities.”
