Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, most people have been required to stay home at all times, especially after Governor Whitmer passed her "Stay Home, Stay Safe" executive order on Monday.  Yet, home is not a safe place for those who deal with domestic violence.  Safehouse Center executive director Barbara Niess-May joined WEMU's David Fair for a conversation on how domestic abuse victims can stay safe during this time of public health pandemic.
