Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a “stay home, stay safe” executive order Monday morning mandating that the state’s residents remain home, and all non-essential businesses close, for the next three weeks due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the order, schools, and consequently high school sports, will remain sidelined through at least Apr. 13.
This is a one-week extension of the previous school closure that was originally announced Friday, March 12.
