Hamtramck Mayor Karen Majewski will talk to the community on Sunday to address how the city is addressing the national health crisis.
The nation is bracing for the full outbreak of the coronavirus. As of Saturday afternoon, there are over 21,000 confirmed cases in the country and more than 250 have died from the virus.
In Michigan there are nearly 800 cases and five deaths.
Worldwide, there are nearly 300,000 cases and almost 12,000 deaths.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has ordered all kindergarten through 12th grade schools to remain closed until April. So far, she has not asked the public to shelter inside, which Illinois has ordered.
Also, all Michigan bars and restaurants have shut down until at least March 30. Those businesses are allowed to offer carryout and delivery services.
Hamtramck City Hall was closed this past week, but when it will re-open will based on a week-to-week basis.
Majewski will address the city through the City of Hamtramck Facebook page on Sunday (March 22) at 2 p.m.
