Michigan Businesses Forge Ahead in Combatting Coronavirus

In the days and weeks since Michigan had its first confirmed cases of coronavirus, Michigan businesses have helped in the fight against this invisible enemy and its effects. Across the state, dozens of small, mid and large businesses have stepped up to the plate to produce personal protection equipment, sanitization supplies and countless other goods and services to ensure Michigan’s preparedness.

“Michigan businesses are the backbone of our state’s economy, and they continue to keep us moving, even in the wake of the coronavirus.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “Despite these difficult times, our state is once again rising to the occasion as the arsenal of ingenuity – ensuring Michiganders have the supplies they need to combat COVID-19. On behalf of the Michigan Republican Party, I would simply like to say, thank you.”
