For the safety of the community, Tribune postpones Healthy Living Expo

HURON COUNTY Following the presumptive-positive diagnosis of two people in the state with COVID-19, the Huron Daily Tribune made the decision to postpone its Healthy Living Expo originally scheduled for Saturday.

According to Advertising Director and event organizer Renee Willis, the decision was made following actions taken by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

We decided to cancel the event after there were confirmed cases in the state and the governor declared a state of emergency, Willis said. We want to help with the recommendation of social distancing.

Willis said it was important to the company and its employees to take extra precautions and make sure one of the companys events didnt put the community at risk.

The event will be rescheduled at a later time, according to Willis, who noted the decision to postpone the event only a few days from its scheduled date was difficult.

This was not a decision made lightly and I am really sad that it had this outcome, but I know we will still have this wonderful event as soon as we can, she said. I love this event and it is only our second year doing it. We didnt want to do this, but we want people to stay healthy so we did what we felt is the right thing.

Willis said the local health organizations, vendors and sponsors have been very positive and understanding of the decision. The Tribune will be working with Laker Schools, which was the venue for the event, to come up with an alternate date.
