Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued a "shelter-in-place" order due to the Coronavirus in the state of Michigan during an 11am press conference.
The executive order is in place starting at 12:01 AM. on Tuesday and will be in place for at least three weeks.
Under the order, residents will be allowed to leave their homes under very limited circumstances, and must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The order prohibits businesses from requiring workers leave their homes unless the workers are necessary to sustain or protect life or to conduct minimum basic operations. Workers that are necessary to sustain or protect life include those in health care and public health, law enforcement and public safety, grocery store workers, and more.
The order also prohibits all public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring among persons outside a single home.
