LANSING, Mich. — There are 480,508 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 12,089 total deaths in Michigan, the state reported Monday.

That's up 3,239 cases and 60 deaths since Saturday.

As of Dec. 28, 318,389 have recovered from the virus.

In November, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and MDHHS Director Robert Gordon announced the 3-week pause which closed indoor dining, movie theatres, in-person learning at high schools and college and more.

That order was set to expire in early December, but Whitmer and Gordon announced a 12-day extension. The latest extension for restaurants will go through Jan. 15, but could be lifted early if numbers continue to decline.
