LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order today extending the state's stay-at-home order for a second time.

Executive Order 2020-59 takes effect immediately, unless "otherwise specified" in the document. It will run through May 15.

The initial stay-at-home order went into effect on March 24. It was set to expire on April 13.

The first extension of the order took effect on April 9. It was set to run through April 30.

This second extension of the order rescinds the first extension.

"We can now start the process of gradually resuming in-person work and activities that were temporarily suspended under my prior orders," the order says.

"But in doing so, we must move with care, patience and vigilance, recognizing the grave harm that this virus continues to inflict on our state and how quickly our progress in suppressing it can be undone."
