DAVISON (DTV) – (4/05/2021) – Originally, on March 22nd, Governor Whitmer allowed people 16 and older with a medical condition or disability that leads them to have a higher chance of contracting COVID-19 to receive the vaccine.
Now, on April 5th, every Michigander can make one’s way to a nearby holder of the COVID-19 vaccine and receive their first dose as long as they’re of the age requirement. This is possible because more vaccines are expected to arrive in Michigan very soon.
Here, you’ll find the intriguing story of a Davison student after securing the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Also, there are some new weekly requirements Spring Athletes must achieve in order to play their sport.
MHSAA has the new requirements explained in full detail on their website.
Some of these requirements will be to take a rapid COVID test once a week, a required signature of all athletes, and to turn in forms as soon as possible.
Athletes will be given two forms this week that need to be returned right after their first day of testing. These forms will also be available in the Athletic Office.
Spring Athlete Testing will begin this week. On Wednesday, April 7th through Friday, April 9th, testing will take place before or after school. Each team will vary in times. Coaches will be given the dates to give to the athletes
Every High school or Middle school athlete will take the test in the first week of one of these days.
Starting on April 11th, teams will have set days and times in the week to have the tests done.
Also, one make-up day per week will be administrated.
Be sure to stay updated on new requirements for Spring Sport Athletes by checking back here.

DAVISON (DTV) – (1/12/2021) -Several breaking news stories came out today regarding the Flint Water Crisis, including information leaked about possible charges against Rick Snyder and others of his office, the settlement for victims, and the McClaren Flint hospital dealing with legionella for a decade:
Rick Snyder’s possible charges:
Information has surfaced about criminal charges against Michigan ex-governor Rick Snyder and others surrounding the Flint Water Crisis, via the Associated Press. Anonymous sources from the Michigan Attorney General’s office, say that the former governor and other members of his administration will be officially charged.
More information is expected to be announced this Thursday, but for now, the specific charges are not yet known. 18 months ago all charges were dropped by attorney general Dana Nessel, and a new investigation was launched after new evidence surfaced.
641.2 million is the total amount of compensation coming to the victims of the Flint Water Crisis. As of November 17th, the City of Flint, McLaren Regional Medical Center, and Rowe Professional Services have agreed to settle the massive class-action lawsuit.. 80% of the 641.2 million will be given to the children of Flint for injuries and illnesses caused by lead-tainted drinking water in the city.
Legionnaires Disease outbreak cause:
New Information reveals that McLaren Flint Hospital has had cases of legionella bacteria growth for more than a decade. Legionella is a pneumonia type bacteria that causes Legionnaires disease. In recent years it has made headline after headline while being associated with multiple deaths in the Flint Water Crisis. However, a report that WJRT-ABC12 uncovered that was created by the CDC states that McLaren had Legionella bacteria in its water since 2008, six years before the Flint Water was switched. 13 months after this report was made it was released to ABC12 through a former state health director. Legionella was detected in Mclaren’s water again in 2017 and 2019 in places like ice machines, shower heads, and even faucets. Of 90 cases reported in 2014-2015, the common thread was McLaren. Then, from January 2018-June 2019, 5 people who contracted the disease, including 2 that died, were believed to contract it from McLaren as well.
Karen Weaver, the former Mayor of Flint, said this over Twitter:
Remember when Snyder told Flint to “get over it”?! Now he can go think on his own words! https://t.co/ujxoyMQ2OA

DAVISON (DTV) – (1/9/2020) – The Davison Cardinal football team has won their second regional in a row beating out a tough opponent that is Detroit Catholic Central.
After Davison’s star quarterback Brendan Sullivan stated he won’t be playing in the rest of the playoffs after the second shutdown, a player who is known as a wide receiver took his place.
Sullivan couldn’t continue playoffs because he graduated early to continue his football career at Northwestern, resulting in Davison’s #1 taking his spot, Dion Brown Jr.
Brown threw for two touchdowns and 151 yards, getting the W the Cards needed to continue to semi-finals.
Looking at the defensive side of things, senior Harrison Hunger contributed massively to the Davison win.
Here are the highlights of the Davison vs. Detroit Catholic Central MHSAA D1 Regional game:
Davison will be playing against Rockford on the 16th of January at 1pm, the location is yet to be announced.
This will be Rockford’s first semi-finals appearance since 2012 while it’s Davison’s second in a row.
The last time these teams played was in 2010 and resulted in a loss for the Cards, 10-27.
And Davison lost at every other three meetings they’ve had:
DTV will have highlights of this game on our YouTube Channel DTV News
Good luck to both teams!
