We are expecting a few updates this week from the Michigan governor on the state’s response to COVID-19.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer first held a news conference 3 p.m. Monday. She was joined by Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun and Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist.

At the end of last week, Whitmer said that while the curve is flattening there is much to consider before reopening the economy amid the pandemic -- and she is treating every industry differently. She said a large factor in determining when Michigan can reopen is the state’s ability to test more people.
She intends to make announcements throughout the week regarding plans for reopening the economy.
