Governor Gretchen Whitmer has announced that Michigan’s stay-at-home order has been extended through May 15th, though some of the restrictions included in the previous order have been loosened.

Under the new order, which goes into effect immediately, Michigan residents can now participate in outdoor activities, like motorized boating and golf.

According to the Associated Press, other businesses that can reopen include landscapers, lawn-service companies, plant nurseries, and bike repair shops.

The new order also states Michigan residents are required to wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces, like grocery stores.

If you own multiple homes in the state, you can now travel between those, as well, though it is being discouraged.
