As COVID-19 surges in the Upper Peninsula, hospitals in rural communities fight to prepare, says Bridge Michigan reporter Robin Erb.

Today on Stateside, the Michigan Republican Party issued a number of unsubstantiated claims against election proceedings in Detroit this week. But on a county by county level, Michigan’s elections appear to have run remarkably smoothly. We check in with a county clerk about how the tabulation process went. Also, a reporter discusses an Upper Peninsula hospital’s preparations for another COVID-19 surge.
