Michigan Health Director Travelled Out of State Against Guidance

Michigan’s health director traveled out of state for spring break despite her own department’s guidance.

Health Director Elizabeth Hertel traveled to Alabama with her family as the state deals with a surge of COVID-19 cases.

Another top aide to Governor Whitmer, Tricia Foster, traveled to Florida even though the governor advised against it.

Republicans have criticized Democratic officials for taking trips on spring break.

Both Hertel and Foster were fully vaccinated before travelling.
