(LANSING) – Michigan saw another 564 cases of COVID-19 reported since Wednesday afternoon, along with another 13 deaths.

That is unacceptable, according to Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who updated citizens during a Thursday morning press conference. With just under 3,000 people infected, Michigan ranks fifth in the nation in the number of coronavirus cases.

On Monday, Whitmer issued an Executive Order for Michiganders to Stay Home and Stay Safe. It limits citizens to necessary travel, such as to work, getting food, groceries and prescriptions, or to check on family members. During Thursday's press conference, Whitmer shared that the Executive Order is not up for debate and must be followed. ...... {LISTEN}.

Whitmer says if we don't do our part of taking these precautions, more people will get sick and could possibly die.
