Lucido to hold April 22 tele-town hall on COVID-19

LANSING, Mich. Senate Majority Whip Peter J. Lucido on Friday announced that on Wednesday, April 22 he will host a second tele-town hall to answer questions from Macomb County residents on the governor’s executive orders and on the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Lucido hosted a tele-town hall on the topic on Wednesday that was very well received.

“We had over 7,000 enlisted engagements during our first COVID-19 tele-town hall,” said Lucido, R-Shelby Township. “I appreciated the participation of so many Macomb County residents and felt it would be beneficial to hold another event to allow more residents to ask questions and get answers. I am grateful that we will again be joined by Dr. Nasir Husain, M.D., who is chief of infectious disease at Henry Ford Hospital – Macomb, to provide answers about the virus itself.”
