Whitmer extends Michigan's stay-at-home order until June 12

Gretchen Whitmer extended her stay-at-home order Friday to June 12, her fifth extension of a mandate that has put her at odds with Republican lawmakers and has been the subject of mounting criticism and anti-lockdown protests.

Whitmer also extended her state of emergency through June 19, WJBK-TV reported.

We owe it to the real heroes on the front lines of this crisis -- our first responders, health care workers and critical workers putting their lives on the line every day -- to do what we can ourselves to stop the spread of the virus.”

In a tweet, Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox criticized the timing of the extension.

As of Friday, Michigan reported nearly 54,000 COVID-19 cases, including 5,518 deaths, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services.
