Watch Bridge’s Lunch Break about COVID mandates, K-12 education in Michigan

October Lunch Break Header

Bridge Michigan’s monthly Lunch Break series continued Wednesday with a discussion on the state of COVID mandates in Michigan’s K-12 schools, outbreaks and the pressure on administrators.

If you missed Wednesday’s chat, you can watch it on demand below.

    Three reporters — Mike Wilkinson and Ron French of Bridge Michigan and Tracie Mauriello, who works for Bridge and Chalkbeat Detroit — were featured in the hour-long discussion about this timely topic.

    Bridge’s Lunch Break monthly series focuses on timely topics facing our state. Previous discussions this year have centered on Bridge’s coverage plans for 2021, coronavirus vaccine distribution, openness in Michigan government, COVID-19’s impact on higher education, the status of Michigan’s redistricting process, Michigan’s recent labor pipeline struggles, the impact of climate change in Michigan, youth mental health in Michigan and Bridge’s tenth anniversary.
