OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard plans to host a "tele-town hall" Thursday for residents.
Bouchard will address critical information about the COVID-19 pandemic and what the shelter-in-place order means for residents and businesses who want to remain open.
We have been asked a large number of questions about many issues & as a result we are doing a call tomorrow to take & answer questions. There will be calls made to let people know specifics about the call and then the actual tele-town-halls start tomorrow.— Mike Bouchard (@MikeJBouchard) April 1, 2020
The sheriff said his office decided to make the calls and do the town hall in response to concerns and confusion from residents.
Bouchard said a few of his deputies have tested positive for COVID-19, but did not disclose how many.
The sheriff's office is also asking for mask donations for deputies on the frontlines.
The town hall will take place at 4:30 p.m on Thursday, April 2; residents should receive a call.
