Michigan Governor Wants To Extend Stay-At-Home Order


Michigan Governor Wants to Extend Stay-At-home Order, Setting Up Another Confrontation With Opponents

By Jeffrey Martin/Newsweek
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday another extension of the state’s stay-at-home order could be needed in order to further mitigate the community spread of coronavirus.

“I want to be clear,” Whitmer said during a Wednesday news briefing. “we will likely need another short-term extension of the Stay Home, Stay Safe order. When we do start to reengage, it will have to be very thoughtful and precise.”

An extension of the stay-at-home order will likely prove to be controversial as Michigan has already been the site of protests against what some believe to be draconian social distancing guidelines.

Protesters gathered on the steps of Michigan’s Capitol in Lansing in April to call for an end to Whitmer’s social distancing policies.

“Citizens are frankly tired of being treated like babies,” said an April statement from co-founder of the Michigan Conservative Coalition Marian Sheridan. “As adults, we now know what needs to be done to stay safe.”
