etired Nurses Help To Fill Gaps As Covid-19 Cases Takes A Toll On Healthcare Workers(CBS DETROIT) – As Michigan continues to see an alarming number of Covid-19 cases, hospitals across Mid-Michigan are trying to prevent overworking their staff on hand. “Our nurses are picking up extra days, but we are very cautious not to burn them out,” said Monica Baranski, chief nursing officer for McLaren Bay Region. “We do have nurses going off daily, with symptoms and the minute they have symptoms we take them out of the workforce, and we do have some struggles with filling those positions.” Baranski said while they are doing good with nursing coverage, “nursing is at a high demand, it's difficult to get even agency nurses right now so we want to stay ahead of the game." Also in some cases, retired nurses are coming in to help cover those open shifts.

Board Of State Canvassers Certifies Michigan's Nov. 3 General Election ResultsThe Board of State Canvassers, which has two Republicans and two Democrats, confirmed the results on a 3-0 vote with one abstention. Allies of Trump and losing GOP Senate candidate John James had urged the panel to delay voting for two weeks to audit votes in heavily Democratic Wayne County, home to Detroit. “The board’s duty today is very clear," said Aaron Van Langevelde, the Republican vice chair. "We have a duty to certify this election based on these returns. That is very clear. We are limited to these returns. I’m not going to argue that we’re not.” He said he wanted to hear public comment, however, before voting. Three hours into what normally is a routine meeting, hundreds of people were waiting to testify remotely. At times, more than 30,000 were watching the livestream. Mary Ellen Gurewitz, an attorney for the state Democratic Party, told the canvassers that attacks on the election results “are part of a racist campaign, directed by soon-to-be former President Trump, to disparage the cities in this country with large Black populations, including Detroit, Philadelphia and Milwaukee.” “It sometimes feels like officials are attempting to tear up my ballot right in front of me by stalling and recounting until they find a way to change the results,” said Wendy Gronbeck, a resident of Douglas. “I’ve been a voter for over 50 years, and I’ve never had to think about whether canvassers will certify an election.” Biden crushed the president by more than 330,000 votes in Wayne County, where two local GOP canvassers who certified the results unsuccessfully tried to reverse course last week after being called by Trump. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, has said an audit must wait until after statewide certification because only then would officials have legal access to documentation needed to conduct such a review. Michigan’s elections bureau recommended that the Nov. 3 results be certified. Monday afternoon, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer released a statement after the Michigan State Board of Canvassers voted to certify the results of the November 2020 election. "I commend the three members of the State Board of Canvassers who voted to follow the law and certify the 2020 election results today. The people of Michigan have spoken," said Whitmer. "President-elect Biden won the State of Michigan by more than 154,000 votes, and he will be our next president on January 20th. I also want to thank Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and the local clerks across Michigan who made sure this year's election was free, fair and secure, and the voters who turned out in record numbers to make their voices heard. Now, it’s time to put this election behind us and come together as a state to defeat our common enemy: COVID-19.”  Michigan's Attorney General Dana Nessel also commended the members of the Board of State Canvassers certifying the state's election results.
