Whitmer plans to further ease coronavirus restrictions

LANSING, Mich. — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday her administration will announce the further loosening of Michigan’s coronavirus restrictions in coming days.

She did not elaborate much in a news conference, in which she again pressed the Republican-controlled Legislature to pass a multibillion-dollar COVID-19 relief funding plan. A state health department order limits indoor restaurant capacity to 25%, imposes a 10 p.m. curfew and restricts the size of inside residential gatherings to no more than 10 people from two households, through March 29.

“Our case numbers and public health metrics are trending in the right direction. I’m very pleased to see that,” the Democratic governor said.
