New restrictions are in place in Michigan as state leaders try to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

 

Sunday evening, Governor Whitmer announced a three-week pause in some activities. A graph from the Michigan Health Department says from November 18th, which is this Wednesday, thru December 8th, high schools and colleges will be remote only.

 

School districts will be able to choose between in-person or remote learning for pre-k thru eighth grade classes.

 

Restaurants and bars will be closed except for outdoor dining, carryout or delivery. Casinos, movie theaters, bowling alleys and ice rinks will be closed. Stores, hair salons, gyms, health care offices and other personal car facilities will remain open.

 

Family gatherings are limited to two different families and only ten people.

 

The Governor said if aggressive action isn't taken, Michigan could have one-thousand deaths a week in the coming weeks.
