Whitmer was vague about her plans to lift restrictions in other parts of the state, saying she’s keeping a close eye on the numbers.


“Please keep staying safe at home,” Whitmer said. “If we keep doing what we have been … we can begin thinking about reengaging sectors in the lower parts of our state.”


Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, the state’s chief medical executive, said the stay-at-home order “has worked, and thousands of lives have been saved.”


“Let’s all continue to use caution so that we do not see a second wave of cases and deaths,” Khaldun said.
