The governor asks you to

Is it prudent to "politely, but forcefully" confront another person not wearing a face mask in public?

That’s what Gov. Gretchen Whitmer asked Michigan residents to do at a July 9 press conference.

“But at the end of the day, it’s on all of us to do our part to educate the people around us whether it is in the store or it’s in our household or it is in our neighborhood or in our work place,” Whitmer said. “We’ve got to implore one another to step up and do the right thing. And Michiganders are smart. We’re tough. We can figure out how to do it politely, but also forcefully. Because it is on all of us.”
