Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an Extended Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order, increasing the length of time the order is in effect and implementing more restrictions compared to the previous Executive Order.

The new order, which takes effect at 11:59 p.m. April 9, remains in effect until April 30. The original order was set to expire April 13.

The extended order also includes new limitations, including more limits on stores. Stores are restricted to limiting the number of people inside the stores at the same time. Big box stores must close off areas that sell carpet or flooring, furniture or paint, along with garden centers or nurseries. Stores also must establish lines with markings for patrons to enable them to stand at least 6 feet apart. The order also states individuals should limit the number of household members running errands.

Among other added restrictions, residents will no longer be able to travel between two residences in the state after April 10, according to the order.
