(Mlive) — Michigan is taking a big step in the likely long journey back to “normal” as the spread of the coronavirus continues to slow.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the reopening of much of the economy in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Peninsula surrounding Traverse County beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday, in addition to allowing small social gatherings.
“Keep your wits about you. Let’s not all go rushing out and force a closure eventually.”
