Governor Whitmer extends stay-at-home order

LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) -- Michigan's stay-at-home order is being extended.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Friday that she is extending the order through June 12th. That means residents are being ordered to stay home unless they need to go out. It also means some public places such as theaters, gyms, and casinos are being required to stay closed.

The announcement came on the same day that the entire Upper Peninsula and 17 counties in the northern Lower Peninsula were allowed to partially reopen, with restaurant and bar capacity being capped at 50%.

Whitmer also signed an executive order to extend her state of emergency related to the coronavirus pandemic through June 19th.

She said in a statement that while COVID-19 numbers are falling, "we are not out of the woods yet."
