Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared Sunday night that the state will effectively enter lockdown again, announcing several directives that must be adhered to by businesses and individuals.

The Detroit News noted that “The new policies will temporarily halt in-person instruction at high schools and colleges, dine-in service at restaurants and bars, and high school athletics as well as close some businesses, including movie theaters, bowling alleys and casinos.”

Under the order, indoor residential gatherings will also be limited to two households at any one time.

The restrictions will take effect this Wednesday, and will be in place until Dec. 8th, according to the report.

Whitmer described the lockdown as a “three-week pause”:

We have been warning you for months, if not years, of the WHO’s depopulation plan. Only now is it confirmed by world leaders that COVID was designed for the Agenda 2030 to begin.

Republicans in Michigan responded to the order, saying that they are “disappointed” that Whitmer is again circumventing the state Senate and House:

“We are disappointed that Gov. Whitmer chose to go it alone, again. The Senate Republicans will continue working with our doctors and the medical community on ways we can combat this virus and are ready to work with the Governor when she decides to work as a team to fight this virus,” said Republican state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey.

House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R) said, “The people of Michigan deserve a seat at the table when major decisions like these are made, and those decisions are made better and safer when they do.”

“As always, we stand ready to act in a bipartisan way when the governor decides it is worth her time. Until then, we are still reviewing the details of this order like everyone else,” Chatfield added.

Whitmer was reportedly Joe Biden’s first pick for Vice President before he was strong armed into choosing Kamala Harris.

The governor has become highly unpopular among a large portion of voters due to her draconian coronavirus lockdown policies.

Among other questionable actions, the governor used the State’s emergency alert system to order residents to wear face masks, after issuing an executive order mandating the masks.

Whitmer also called small business owners “racist” and “neo Nazis” for protesting her lockdown orders.
