So we have this Corona virus outbreak in South Central Mi.

Reporting from behind the lines in a red county in south central Mi. A College we will call Midvale because that is the name Law And Order TV show chose when they did a story years ago that had absolutely "nothing to do with the actual college I'm reporting on". There is a Covid outbreak, an insider just told me a little over 37% of the students are testing positive. As of Monday there were 175 positives in only 475 tests , 12 symptomatic. 52 in quarantine.

There are 155 also in isolation in several areas including on campus and offsite. My informant said many are self isolating? or supposed to be in off campus dwellings they are not included in the numbers. Meanwhile administration on the hill is saying they are doing pretty much everything as scheduled and don't want to impinge on the students natural rights. Translate that to mean the pampered self important darlings are free to parade around the town where Midvale is located maskless and in packs at grocery stores.

From day 1 Midvale College has flouted the Governors orders. in March when they asked kids not to come back they explicitly said it was their choice, they didn't have to listen to her. At end of semester they held an actiual in person commencement. They actually had armed guards trying to prevent Journalists who were on public property from reporting on it.

Now even more troubling they have published articles in their house paper touting so called herd immunity. I was just informed the guy who wrote it was also the one who gave them the justification to hold the live commencement. The county has at present 32 deaths and about 1,000 cases. a derelict city council and county commissioners who are unduly influenced by Midvale College have done everything possible to spread this, encouraging masklessness and risky behaviors by citizens and businesses.

Midvale College has poisoned the town and thus county for many years in so many ways. They have a very successful scam that has gone on for a very long time. They have spawned other scams that have also harmed the area. But this scam is deadly it kills and maims. This is by far the worse thing Midvale has ever done.

1. If this is Hillsdale College, they are kind of terrifying.

It looks like their educational philosophy is libertarian-evangelical, so it figures that they'd blow off covid precautions, because freedumb. https://www.hillsdale.edu/hillsdale-blog/academics/classical-liberal-arts/philosophy-university-hillsdale-college/

2. Hillsdale claims to be the birthplace of the Republican Party in 1854

I was thinking maybe the OP was about Albion College, which is in south-central Michigan too, IIRC.

while Hillsdale has a more, shall we say, git yer gummint outta my face philosophy.

7. Well I can confirm

I can confirm this is definitely Hillsdale College. The majority of the town, including it's mayor, vehemently denies there's an issue. Masks are a violation of my rights!

9. I'm not sure they ever looked at the science.

In March when Mayor and council voted to ignore Guvs. orders I tried to tell them what was gonna happen. Seems they were just wedded to Trumps lies and just didn't care about facts. Mayor in particular has encouraged unsafe behavior. And encouraged businesses to defy.
