Some long awaited good news amid the COVID-19 pandemic!
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the end of the state’s stay-at-home order effective immediately with restrictions lifting within the next week for various sectors of the economy. Residents are not required to stay home as much as possible as long as they continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines and safety measures.
For businesses, several sectors of the economy will be allowed to either reopen for the first time or extend their services beyond what has been allowed under the prior order. Whitmer announced the entire state has moved into phase 4 of the MI Safe Start recovery plan.
“The data has shown that we are ready to carefully move our state into the next phase of the MI Safe Start Plan, but we owe it to our brave frontline heroes to get this right,” Whitmer said in a press release.
“While Michiganders are no longer required to stay home, we must all continue to be smart and practice social distancing, and encourage those who meet the criteria to get tested for COVID-19. If we all do our part, our goal is to announce a shift to phase five for the entire state prior to the fourth of July. Stay smart, stay safe, and let’s all do our part.”
