Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer has announced Thursday afternoon that the state of Michigan’s ‘Stay Home, Stay Safe’ executive order has been extended to April 30, in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
It was set to expire this Monday, April 13.
According to reports from 97.1 the Ticket and Radio Results Network’s Jack Hall, the order also requires all non-essential workers to sustain or protect life to stay home as much as possible.
This order is towards limiting the amount of gatherings and travel for vacations, along with plans to reduce the number of crowds in stores at one time.
In addition, Whitmer also signed two new executive orders. One order implements the purpose of reducing unnecessary human-to-human contact. Such measures that will be used include electronic signatures, remote notarizations and visitations.
The second order signed is to guarantee the flow of medical supplies coming into the state of Michigan. It also states that medical personnel are permitted to come into Michigan during the ongoing pandemic.
