Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a new executive order Friday that extends the stay-home order in Michigan through May 15. The stay-home order was originally set to expire on April 30.
But the new order does ease restrictions on several low-risk businesses, like gardening and golf, and also allows travel between Michigan residences. The order also now requires everyone to wear some sort of face covering when out in public.
Wearing a face mask protects the people around you in the instance that you are infected but aren't showing any symptoms. This is also a safety measure in addition to keeping your six-foot distance from anyone while in public; it does not replace that precaution.
