Ban lifted on boats & golf in Michigan
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer eased social distancing restrictions on motor boats, golfing and landscaping at 11 am today, while extending the stay-at-home order until May 15.
Landscaping and nursery workers can return to work, and gardening sections in box stores can reopen now.
However, the Governor was crystal clear on continuing social distancing as much as possible.
“The overarching message is still the same. We must all do our part by staying home and staying safe,” she said. “Social distancing is our best weapon to defeat the enemy.”
This easing of restrictions is a result of protests “Operation Gridlock” in Lansing two weeks ago. It comes on the heels of yesterday’s death tally of 50,000 Americans.
