A chiropractor in Grand Haven is challenging the state’s mask rule, saying Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s health department has no authority to make it mandatory.

It’s one of the first lawsuits since the Whitmer administration issued new coronavirus orders following a defeat at the Michigan Supreme Court.

What a silly and selfish argument from a chiropractor whose mission is to restore health and minimize chronic pain issues. One would think this purpose would overrule any negative personal feelings about public health precautions that are meant to slow down the spread of a new, deadly, highly-contagious virus for which there is currently no approved vaccine or readily available treatment or cure. This is a viral pandemic in which the US leads the world in confirmed infections and deaths, with the virus spreading into every state and affecting all age-groups. It is a declared emergency in all 50 states, and is mutating to become more contagious while sickening more people in the 20-35 age group. Medical experts are reporting more long-term health problems. Let's get a grip on our personal prejudices and get professional.

Thanks! I will be sure to pick another chiropractor who believes in protecting people!
