Stay Home Order Extended Stay To June 12; Emergency Extended To June 19: On Friday, May 22,Governor Gretchen Whitmer ordered the extension of the stay home order two more weeks to June 12. The prior order was set to expire May 28. That said, restrictions within the orders continue to ease as the Governor has also allowed for social gatherings of up to 10 people and allowed further businesses openings for auto sales and retail. For the two northern regions of the state, which have seen much lower caseloads, the Governor allowed for even greater activity, opening bars and restaurants with limited capacity as well as other in-person work. Also this week, the initial court decision affirmed Whitmer's right to extend the emergency orders past April 30, although the Legislature declined to act on extending the orders.
