‘Spread Hope, Not COVID’ campaign calls for Michigan to unite, stop COVID

LANSING — Governor Gretchen Whitmer is urging Michiganders to join together, with a new campaign.

The campaign, titled “Spread Hope, Not COVID,” calls on Michiganders to unite to contain the spread of COVID–19, so the state can reopen and stay open.

The campaign asks Michiganders to take simple steps, such as wearing a mask and social distancing, and more.

“The virus has taken so much away from us, but every action that a united Michigan takes to contain the spread moves us closer to resuming normal, to moving our economy and lives forward,” said Whitmer.

The campaign will communicate with residents through broadcast, outdoor, social and digital media, and the news media. The campaign is also sharing information through state and local associations, business organizations, K-12, college and university organizations and institutions, health care provider groups, communities of color, and other stakeholder groups that represent or reach millions of Michigan residents.
