To mask or not to mask? Now that Governor Gretchen Whitmer has reoriented her benchmarks on COVID-19 restrictions to align with the CDC, questions remain with businesses and individuals about when masking is appropriate. Today on Stateside, an update on mask mandates from Lansing, a conversation with a small business owner on what she will do at her store, and a UM professor emeritus on the line between mandate and personal responsibility. Plus, we hear from a Saugatuck author on his new novel.
