The state’s response to the COVID-19 crisis is expected to be the central focus tonight of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s third State of the State address.

The address will be delivered remotely because of the COVID-19 crisis, and it’s believed the first time in Michigan’s state and territorial history without the Legislature in attendance.

   The governor told M-Live that everything– including re-opening schools and businesses -- rests on taming the spread of COVID and getting people vaccinated
