Governor Whitmer extends stay-at-home order to May 28, shares state reopening plan

Posted by: jgomori Posted date: May 7, 2020

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extended the state’s stay-at-home order through May 28 and detailed her plan to reopen the state, including manufacturing which is set to be phased in starting next week.

Whitmer signed Executive Order 77 on May 7, replacing the previous order which required residents to stay-at-home until May 15. Executive Order 77 requires non-essential employees stay-at-home until May 28. It also gives Michigan’s manufacturing industry the go ahead to begin operations as early as May 11, dependent upon meeting state requirements for COVID-19 workplace safeguards. These requirements are specified in the order.

Gov. Whitmer also announced Michigan is halfway through a six-phase plan to completely reopen the state. She said the state was in the Flattening phase of the MI Safe Start plan as of May 7:

  • Phase 1: Uncontrolled growth
  • Phase 2: Persistent spread
  • Phase 3: Flattening
  • Phase 4: Improving
  • Phase 5: Containing
  • Phase 6: Post-pandemic
