Perfectly Explainable? Governor Chooses To Close Water Parks, Open Public Pools

Critics of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s coronavirus epidemic executive orders contend that many of her decisions appear inconsistent.

A new example is found in Executive Order 160, which was issued by Whitmer on July 29.

This ordered water parks in most of Michigan to be closed, yet public swimming pools are allowed to remain open with certain occupancy limitations.
