Washtenaw County’s Board of Commissioners has declared a state of emergency in the county.
Commission Chair Jason Morgan made the declaration as part of a larger local strategy to help fight the spread of the coronavirus.
Morgan says they are activating every resource at their disposal to keep the community safe.
“The declaration does allow us more discretion in term of more resources, if we should need them,” says Morgan.
