Governor Gretchen Whitmer today announced that Michigan’s Region 5 is advancing to the Phase 4: IMPROVING status under her Michigan Safe Start Plan for relaunching the economy. The following statement of support of the Governor’s announcement can be attributed to Steven Japinga, vice president public affairs, Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce:

“We appreciate Governor Whitmer moving REGION 5 as part of her MI Safe Start Plan to PHASE 4 “IMPROVING.” We’ve done the right thing by staying home and have carefully created plans through the RELAUNCH Greater Lansing Task Force to assist employers on re-opening operations, while ensuring the safety of employees and customers . The time is right to continue to open business operations and we’ll do it safely through our collective efforts for REGION 5, which includes clinton, eaton, gratiot, ingham and shiawassee counties.”
