LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said this morning hair salons, barbershops, spas and other personal-care businesses can re-open across the state on June 15 after being shut down earlier this year to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Read the full executive order signed by Whitmer today.

Meanwhile, those businesses and places like gyms can re-start in northern Michigan next week.

The governor on Friday further advanced the Upper Peninsula and Traverse City under her re-start plan, effective Wednesday.

In northern counties, indoor gatherings of 50 people will be permissible.

Outdoor gatherings of 250 will be allowed, while outdoor performance and sporting venues will be able to have 500 people — allowing for some graduation ceremonies.

Whitmer expects to move the rest of Michigan to the next phase in coming weeks.
